What the author has to say to you:

Dear Readers,
Just to let you know, I personally spent four years in second grade. In middle and high school, I spent a lot of time in the guidance office. I was even in the principal's office for a while. The next thing I knew, I was in college and then I found myself at a university. I was there so long, learned so many words, read so many books, and took so many classes, they made me a professor. And, I'm still in school, even in the summer!
-Valerie Allen, Ed.D.
