1. What was your favorite subject in school?

Music/Choir

2. What was your least favorite subject in school?

Math!!! (YUCK)

3. Who was one of your most memorable/favorite Teachers when you were in school?

Can you tell us a bit about why they were so special?

Mrs. Ross. My amazing 5th grade teacher who went above and beyond the classroom to bring the world into education and education into the world. One small example: she had us put on our own production of "The King & I", complete with sets and costumes and everything memorized. To further the experience, she took us on a field trip from our School in the DC suburbs of VA to NYC to see Constance Towers & Yul Brenner on broadway in "The Kind & I". She truly sparked my interest in music & theatre. She also introduced me to my favorite book: "That Quail Robert".

4. If you went to college, where did you go and what was your major…if not, did you choose military, go right in to the work force or other?

Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and then transfered later to George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. I majored in Voice Performance (singing/opera/choral)

5. What are your plans this Labor Day Weekend?

Clean up the tree that fell in the storm this weekend. If the weather isn't too bad, take son (13) to his first football scrimage and may sail to Baltimore. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Jane,

I have to completely agree with you about Latin. I think Latin is a close second for me behind Math. My mother strongly urged me to take it (I had taken 4 years of Spanish at this point and wanted a change). Mom said Latin would help with SAT's and stuff. WHATEVER! Really disliked Latin.

and your quote at the end of your Friday 5 reminds me of when I was first diagnosed with PD. The members of my online Mom's of March 01 babies sent me a card and it had that saying written across the front:

" What lies behind us and what lies before us are timy matters compared

to what lies within us." Ralph Waldo Emerson

It really meant so much to me and I keep it sitting on the window sill as a daily reminder of not only its meaning, but of the importance of friends.

Ruben,

Enjoy your trip to Colorado, but know this board is truly going to miss you! When do you depart and for how long will you be away? How long does it take to go from Mars to Colorado? Is it a shorter trip now that Mars is supposively closer to Earth these days?

Can't wait to hear about all the chile eating,too! Will you be a judge?

YUM!

Favorite subject was English lit., Least favorite Math. Married at 19 after one year of college. Completed 3 1/2 years of college, double majoring in Early childhood education and Home Economics. I was enrolled in the final semester when I was asked to foster parent two children ages 2 and 4. With three children ages 2-6, I decided to drop out of school and give the children all of my attention. I never wanted or planned to have a career outside the home even after graduating. I only continued my education in order to learn how to teach and better care for my family. Very old fashioned, but my dream! After the children started school and I realized that they were not getting the education I wanted for them I started our own school. We built a building next door to our building material business, hired good teachers and I ran a preschool program to support the school. As the school grew we were able to hire a preschool teacher and I worked as the Volunteer Administrater/secretary until eventually being able to hire someone for these positions. We started with 32 students and now have 132 students 18 years later, in this small town of 3,000. I am currently the president of the board of directors and serve only in that capacity. Our children all attended or still attend this elementary school and received a great education using the A Beka Christian school curriculum.

My favorite teacher was my 7th grade English teacher. She helped me write a winning story for a contest and made me feel that I could do anything that I set my mind to do.


We are helping move my husbands parents (84 and 85) into a house we just finished building for them on our place. I just came home to put the little ones (grandchildren) down for naps and take a break myself too. They seem happy to be getting close to all these Grandkids. I think it will be great for the whole family. We look forward to spending more time with them in these last years. The house is totally handicap accessible.....Have a great weekend everyone. Blessings, Sharon

1. What was your favorite subject in school? I enjoyed both math and history.

2. What was your least favorite subject in school? Any language.

3. Who was one of your most memorable/favorite Teachers when you were in school?

Can you tell us a bit about why they were so special? Mrs. Green – she was my second, third and sixth grade teacher. (Small town – small school in upstate New York.) I liked her because she genuinely cared about her students. She was tough as nails but never forgot that we were kids. She also always took her class on trip of some sort at the end of every school year

4. If you went to college, where did you go and what was your major…if not, did you choose military, go right in to the work force or other. I had one year of college for computer programming right out of high school but then I went into the Army. I’ve been in the work force pretty much since then.

5. What are your plans this Labor Day Weekend?

This weekend has been a little crazy. We had/have funerals both Friday and Tuesday. Saturday was a travel day with a little R & R mixed in. Sunday was spent planning and trying to prepare for what we need to get done before our trip to Florida next week. Today we hope to install a patio door. Busy, busy, busy….

Hoping everyone is having a super weekend! Marty
