Ben Perushek December 2, 2010 Education Autobiography I have always been successful when it comes to school work and homework. I never really saw it as work; it just always seems to come easy for me. It may have been that I was the youngest child and my parents had had two chances to see how a child should be raised. They used those techniques and tweaked them to help me early in my learning career. Maybe it was the my mom was a kindergarten teacher and she knew different techniques and methods of how children learned. Maybe it was simply that the Lord blessed me with the ability to be successful in school and to not consider it work or a challenge. It was a way to become more intelligent and as a way to practice the talents God has given me. Even from an early age school and learning seemed to come second nature to me. I remember one of my first real school experiences quite vividly. It was before I was to start kindergarten. The kindergarten I went to had what was called “kindergarten readiness.” It was a one-on-one meeting with the kindergarten teacher to see how much each student knew and how much needed to be done over the course of the up- coming school year. I remember her asking me to count as high as I could. Now the av- erage kindergarten student could count to 20-30. I kept counting until 100. My kinder-
garten teacher was very impressed. In 2-4 grades, I was in advanced math.
