The schools in my area have been back in session for 2 weeks, but the big county across the river has started today, so everything is school school school today...
So in honor of that, I'm doing confessions about School
.... I used to pull out a big chalkboard, line up my dolls & play school all the time when I was little. I wish I would have listened to that call on my heart & been a teacher. Gotta be the best job. A job with built in Spring Break & Summer Break? Yes please.
.... I got kicked out of my 1st grade class one time for saying I didn't like Tom T. Hall & a song the teacher was playing. See where speaking up on how you really feel gets you?
.... That was probably the worst trouble I ever got in my whole school career.
.... I remember milk breaks in first grade. A carton of milk for 15 cents & then it was heads down on the desk for 15 minutes. I want to incorporate that in my days now... except instead of a carton of milk, its a $2.50 iced coffee. #inflation
.... My first grade teacher was the only teacher I ever had that was a Miss instead of a Mrs. ... I always wonder if she married.
.... My 4th grade teacher was the 'dreaded mean teacher' everyone talked about. Mrs. Voyt - I still remember her name. She ended up being a pretty cool teacher. Lesson learned - don't believe rumors.
.... We only had one male teacher in all of our elementary school. It was so weird in the 70's to see a male teacher.
.... I literally cried till I was sick leaving my 5th grade teacher. She was the best. I found out a few years ago that she's a pastor of a church now. I need to find her church. I'd probably cry like a baby seeing her again. I know she'd have no clue who I was.
.... I always loved getting new lunchboxes. The old school ones with the matching thermos were the best. My grandmother always insisted I carry the sturdy reliable Tupperware lunchboxes though.
|Anyone remember these?|
.... Tupperware plastic would get a weird smell in it by the end of the year.
.... Middle School is where I met my best friend. Everyone should always have at least one amazing best friend in life.
.... My 6th Grade picture is still my favorite school picture I ever took.
.... Let's never talk about any of my high school pictures. Oh mercy....
... I had a Smurf's Mead Trapper Keeper that was DA'BOMB ...
... All the cool people in school had a LL Bean Back Pack... We never could afford a $60.00 backpack. I survived. Your kids will too if you they don't get what everyone else has.
.... I always hated school lunches because they would plop food on a tray & it would all touch or run together. Thanks mom for all the sandwiches made over the year so I didn't have to go through the lunch line. GAG
.... I never really had school spirit. Didn't care about games, dances, or really anything that happened in school. Never was part of any teams or clubs. I had to be at work after school. I guess that's why I never went back for any reunions.
.... Our school was in a 100 year old building that didn't have air condition. Talk about a torture chamber in the Summer/Spring.
....I always loved math & algebra was my favorite. But Geometry? I still don't understand how that stuff works.
... I always loved having to do essays for our English tests. Like I say here, give me a topic & I can write for days. My big move was to always end my essay with a question. ... "& isn't that what it's all about?" .... BAM! In my mind, I see the teacher shaking her head in agreement with the wonderful essay she just read.
... I had a 102.5 fever on my graduation night. My doctor loaded me up on antibiotics so I could make to walk & get my diploma on graduation night. I was miserable. Come to find out - years late - my appendix had ruptured ..... didn't even know it. Thank the LORD that my doctor had given me all those antibiotics. So its true when I say I barely made it out of school alive :)
What is a confession you have about school?
