Back to School Friday Five

My late mother-in-law thought of September as the “real” New Year because of the number of programs and classes starting. By Labor Day, school is back in session for most of us in the U.S., although there is great variation by region (my children don't return until Sept. 7th!). To mark this, we bring you the Back to School Friday Five.

1. What is your earliest memory of school? First day, first grade. I was scared to death starting school. I felt lost. The school and classroom seemed so big, and I felt so small. But my first grade teacher was so nice that she made us all of us feel comfortable.
2. Who was a favorite teacher in your early education? You know my first grade teacher was my favorite, but my 4th grade teacher rocked. She let me use my artsy side in my homework, and she brought the best out in me.
3. What do you remember about school “back then” that is different from what you know about schools now?Well here are a few things, there are computeTV's, CD, cd players, no naps, early reading, early homework, early testing, dress is different, cafeteria food is different, snack time, desks are different, the classrooms are decorated, not so sterile that's just a few.
4. Did you have to memorize in school? If so, share a poem or song you learned. Yes, I had to memorize, but do you think I can remember what it is now. Okay maybe abc's, itsy bitsy spider. Pledge of allegiance. Now go away.
5. Did you ever get in trouble at school? Were there any embarrassing moments you can share? I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me, but if you must know; just about every grade I was in some kind of trouble. And I will not share any embarrassing moments. Teehee, it will be my secret, and the Principal and the teacher, and my friends. And the secret has died with the Principal and the teacher, and well my friends know the consequences of telling the secret.

True friends are the ones who don't want anyone else to know either.
