He is pretty ambivalent, actually. But he’s had pretty good luck with teachers since then (except 2nd grade, but that wasn’t as bad as kindergarten), and he’s older now, more able to fly under the radar. Still setting the curve. ☺
He loves to learn, he just prefers doing on his own time, in areas of interest. He can explain the history of mythology (greek, Roman, and Egyptian) beginning to end.
And he’s definitely a writer.
