School Daze

The Friday 5 for this week concerns... school.

Given that Tuesday will be the First Day of School for many kids across the country; this seems like an appropriate topic.

  1. Are you going to school this year?
  2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?
  3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?
  4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?
  5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?

  1. Are you going to school this year?
    No :-)

  2. If no, when did you graduate?
    1984 with a Masters Degree in Science. I've taken a few American Sign Language classes since then at the local community college but nothing towards a degree program. I have no intention of ever "going back to school".

  3. What were your favorite school subjects?
    Science. I took every science class I could, including the year that Bio lab ran 4th & 5th double period once a week (and I had Physics 6th period) -- my mother had to write a note giving permission for me to not have a lunch period that day!

  4. What were your least favorite school subjects?
    Phys Ed. (Yuck; ptooie!) and Social Studies (booooring). Prior to 8th grade, I hated Math; in 8th grade it finally clicked.

  5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?
    Miss Reilly, 9th grade English; she was simply wonderful. Mr. Shope, 7th grade science; he let me take home the planaria at the end of the year. I loved my 2nd and 3rd grade teachers (Miss Zoomas and Mrs. Ingersoll) and kept in touch with Mrs Hale, my 5th grade teacher, for a year or so after she moved to North Dakota.

    In college I became friends with my Med. Micro TA (Susan McMahon) and we still correspond.

I liked school OK when I was there but I never liked tests or homework and would not want to go back.
