Alex Forsythe, co-founder of Dyslexic Kids, is the best of the best! Grand champion of all the grand champions! Way to go, Alex! She built a Particle Accelerator and a Supercomputer to run the Particle Accelerator!
Both of us (Scott Forsythe and Alexandra Forsythe) became active volunteers for the library long before we were reading at grade level. No one cared more, or tried more, to encourage us to love reading than the librarians at ACPL! The work they do is so important and they put their whole hearts into it. The library is like a second home to us now, and the librarians are like family. Our level of gratitude cannot be adequately expressed, so we do what we can to pay it forward. As board members of the ACPL TAB, we help the library come up with new, innovative ways to encourage the next generation to read, regardless of their learning differences.
Your local library is a treasure – perhaps more so than you realize. We would encourage you to get to know your local librarian. They can make such a difference in the life of your child!
We’re all set for our summer adventures! Scott will be studying abroad in Italy then flying back to NASA for his software engineering internship. Alex begins her electrical engineering NASA internship in a matter of days! Plus, she’ll be taking classes in the evenings. Both of us will be working on the next generation of GOES weather satellite, but we’ll be in different departments and buildings. Very exciting! And very busy! We’ll see you in August! Have a fantastic summer, everyone!
We’ve posted this before, but as we head into finals week it bears repeating. Many things aren’t measured by tests!
I’m not sure how grateful I should be about the number of mistakes dyslexia causes me to make, but I will admit that I am a better student because of the resilience and strength it has taken to get through school despite my dyslexia! So maybe this article is right and I should embrace those mistakes. But there are days…!
