I learn best when I'm listening while I draw. I always struggled in school because teachers saw this as "goofing off."

Same here! I start drawing in the middle of class and my maths teacher is all like, "Stop it! Just cuz you like art more than maths..." And then he goes on a little rant. Same happens with my geography, English and Science teachers. It's like a universal system. I'm getting alot of detentions for it.

me and my teachers have struck a deal- If they let me draw, I listen. I generally start zoning out automatically if I'm meant to be listening and I don't have something to do, so it works all round'. (:

I know your feelings, my teacher almost gave me detention. God I wish they would've understood our world a bit.

I do the same! I just doze off if I have to sit idle while listening.. luckily no one cares if I draw.. as long as I get my grades;)

Luckily for me, I'm now on the twelve grade. Passed ALL my classes. Although I AM a goof-off EVEN when I work on my computer.

I found I also learned best while I was listening and drawing. However, my school was full of teachers who didn't give a crap about anything.
