I started school some time after we moved to the Brown House. It was only a few blocks away, so even though I was really young, I usually walked. My teacher was Mrs. Schneider. I don't really remember much, making a bowl for Thanksgiving is about all I can think of. We formed the bowls out of clay and they were put into a kiln and hardened. I think I still have it somewhere back in Washington.
After Kindergarten, it was time for first grade. This school was farther away, so I took the bus. It picked me up from right in front of the house. My teacher was Mrs. Pocklington. I remember even less about this than Kindergarten.
When my dad started dating school, he put us in this school. Her two daughters already went there. I started at the beginning of second grade, but around April my dad pulled us out of it. I don't think he could afford sending five kids to a private school any more. My class was really small, I think there were only six other people in my class. But, we shared the classroom and teacher with the third grade class, which was a lot bigger. For some reason I remember going to the bathroom a lot. Interesting thing to remember about going to a school.
I started here for the end of my second grade. I went all the way until I graduated the sixth grade. It was a pretty good school, but even farther away than Central was. By the time we started here, we had moved to the house on the hill. Central was pretty close, but they wouldn't let us go there. So we walked to Central school every morning and took a bus to Washington. Sometimes we would ride our bikes there, it was probably about 3 miles.
After Elementary school, I started middle school, seventh and eighth grade. I lived about a mile from the school, so I usually walked or rode my back. Sometimes my dad would be able to give us a ride, but not very often.
After Middle School, it was time for high school, ninth grade to twelfth grade. The school was pretty cool, it had separate buildings for different subjects. One building was humanities for things like history, English, current events, etc. There was a science building for biology, anatomy, math and other science type classes. The business building had all the business related classes, like accounting and marketing, as well as a computer lab for keyboard classes. There were a few other buildings; administration, library, theatre, shop, gym. I took lots of different classes, enjoyed most of them.
I got two degrees from here, Associates of Applied Science in Electronics and Computer Technology, and a Bachelors in Technical Management. The good majority of the classes I took were all electronic/computer related, with only a few general education classes. I've always enjoyed school, but now I'm glad it's finally over for now. I'm not sure when I'll go back to get another degree, but I do plan to at some point.
