Friday Five

Questions courtesy of
1. What was/is your favorite subject in school? Why?
I was always a big fan of social studies & history. I don’t know why exactly, because it wasn’t always my best subject. I guess I really enjoyed finding out what happened to make X turn out the way it is today.

2. Who was your favorite teacher? Why?
I have so many favorite teachers because I was really lucky to have so many exceptionally talented teachers. Just to name a few: Ms. Johnson (English – Bloomingdale High School), Mr. Hauer – who’s favorite expression is “Be good!” (History – Bloomingdale High School), Ms. Chernoff (History – Bloomingdale High School), and Mr. Hope (Band – Bloomingdale High School).

3. What is your favorite memory of school?
Dang! Choose one?! I couldn’t even begin to narrow it down to one! How about my entire Senior year? Does that count?

4. What was your favorite recess game?
My love affair with Dodge Ball (and all it’s other less p.c. names) is well documented.

5. What did you hate most about school?
I think the thing I hated the most was the occasional day when I had to ride the bus before I was old enough to drive. Usually I got a ride from my older friends, but sometimes…grr…the big yellow dog.
