I never got to go to kindergarten.
We lived in Trinidad when I was five. The school was very British.
Anyway my dad taught me how to read when I was four and when they found out I could read already they bumped me up to grade one.
I stayed a grade ahead until I moved from CA to Vancouver. The principal said that the US system was easier (!) and this might be a good time to put back with my peers.
Guess I looked kind of dumb!
I am trying to picture wee little MJD in kindygarten....bet the teacher couldn't get away with a thing.
