...this may be why! By the time I was in the 6th grade, I'd been to six different schools (not counting preschool) and lived in five different states.
Oh, and thanks very much to my brother who sent this article to me. What exactly is he implying?
Kidding aside, as much as I changed schools early on, my parents tried to make the transitions a little easier on me by sending me to Christian schools that all used roughly the same curriculum with minor variations. I may have been the new kid, but gosh darn it, I'd used the same reading and math books all the other kids had the previous school year. A small thing, perhaps, but it helped. And, from the article linked above, it seems any small help may be a big thing for the transient child.
