I want to tell you about a student I know. They like school and earned good grades (for the most part). Hit some bumps along the way, though.
They are quiet but friendly. Preferably in small groups. They do get energized once in a while in larger settings.
Independent. Willing to try new things when they really want to, but sometimes reluctant.
Their natural inclination is to observe before taking action.
They tend to do better in history classes and the humanities. Math and the sciences do not come naturally. (Although, has a fascination with astronomy.) They succeed in math when they have a supportive teacher who is happy to repeat themselves until it clicks.
After high school graduation, they went on to college and continued to get good grades, again with some hiccups. They graduated and even went on to earn a master’s degree and a doctorate.
However, throughout their experience, they struggled in school. A lot. Even though they liked school and got good grades, it was a challenge. Seemingly nothing came easy–not a good test taker; writing was a constant struggle. Generally, it took time to formulate ideas in their mind.
