QUESTIONS–

1.) How were you as a student?

2.) What was your favorite subject and did you excel in it?

3.) What – if any – is your fondest school years memory?

4.) Did you attend college and if so, how was that experience?

5.) Would you go back to school – be it in person or online – if you could? (Or to earn another degree?)

ANSWERS–

1.)  Growing up, I was a very driven student. Though my parents didn’t push me to succeed, I looked at school as my job and tried to do my very best at all times. This resulting in lots of all A report cards, winning poster contests, etc. As I got closer to college, I admit that I slacked off because I wasn’t being challenged. School was pretty easy for me up until the dreaded college algebra.

2.) I always loved English (of course) and yes, I did well. Though to be honest, I liked pretty much all subjects until high school math. In high school, I really loved my science classes but knew I’d never pursue a science as a career.

3.) For some reason, whenever I think of school, the first thing that pops into my head are the years from 3rd to 5th grade. I went to a private school until then and after, Orange Brook Elementary in Hollywood. It was only a few blocks from my house and I walked. I loved my teachers, friends, getting good grades, being a hallway monitor, and winning spelling bees. The playground was awesome, they had huge open fields where I ran and oftentimes beat even the fastest boys.

4.) Ahh yes, for me, college was a given. I moved just far enough away (four hours) to be separated from my parents but not so far I couldn’t easily drive home for the weekend. College was fun and stressful. I changed majors halfway and took five years to complete undergrad. But I learned a lot and not just in actual classes. College is such a huge life experience. I don’t regret going at all. Neither do I regret grad school.

5.) I think that someday, I may return for my PhD but it probably won’t be in writing. I guess it depends on whether or not I think it might help me gain a better job… or not.

  1. You and I sound quite a like. I enjoyed the high school sciences too, though yea knew I would never do anything with them. I too was very driven and just did it on my own; which is why I think it drives me crazy when I have to fight my son about homework, just so different than I was.
    Great questions this week.

  2. Funny, kids either love math or hate it, right? I was on the “hate” team. I had the same teacher from Gr 7-9, and he got me through it, even though I hated it. He was one of the best teachers I ever had. Then for Gr. 10 and 11, I got put in a “high” math class (which I NEVER should have been in) with a teacher that didn’t even understand the material – math for my last two years of high school was pure hell.

  3. I would love to earn a PhD, but since I want to switch gears, I’d have to earn another masters! :/ IDK….maybe once the youngest has graduated in three years.

    LOL You reminded me of racing the boys on the playground. I was short and fast in elementary school….I didn’t get tall until 8th grade!

    Thanks for hosting,
