Danielle Galloway loves the order of math.
She likes that it requires certain steps to get the right answer. Success in life, she says, is the same way. Galloway, who graduates Friday night from North Atlanta High School, tells herself that if she can get through math, she can get through life.
“But Miss Isaac the other day told me I should reverse it and say, if I can get through the crazy things I’ve been through in my life, I can get through math,” said Galloway.
Terina Isaac is Galloway’s school counselor. She obviously knows a few things.
“I think Danielle’s a typical teenager with an atypical history,” said Isaac.
