Welcome to Mars

Hello. I haven't posted here in ages, but long story short, I have dyscalculia and also work with kids who have learning disabilities.

Some of you may have heard of an essay called "Welcome to Holland." Some people love it, but I personally found it incredibly degrading on a number of levels. So I decided to write my own essay, Welcome to Mars. I'm not sure how it will be received, honestly - I'm a little worried I'll also rub people the wrong way. At the same time, I really do want to offer a slightly more personal and optimistic perspective.
