LEARNING HIS WAY

HOW TUCKER DORDEVIC CAME TO ACCEPT HIS LEARNING DIFFERENCES.
Tucker Dordevic

Tucker Dordevic sat upstairs confused because his tutor had left without having taught him anything. His mother, Kathi, didn’t tell her son why his teacher quit on him, but Dordevic would come to understand. The third grader’s tutor was one of many educators who didn’t know how to help him. The tutor wanted an easy fix and suggested meditation because Kathi’s son was “unteachable.”

Tucker graduated from Edison in 2017. He now attends Syracuse University and plays on the Men’s Lacrosse Team.
