  1. Did you love school or hate it? I loved school. I guess that’s why I became a teacher!  🙂 
  2. Start school before or after Labor Day? When I lived in Pennsylvania we started school after Labor Day. When I moved to Texas at the age of 11 we started before Labor Day. Now as a teacher our district starts the middle of August.
  3. Wake up: eager beaver or slow poke? I am definitely a slow poke. I would really like a good couple of hours to get going but that’s not always the case!
  4. Favorite breakfast? With my food sensitivities I am limited on what I can eat. And since I’m a slow poke I don’t like to expend much energy on cooking breakfast. So pretty much every day I eat Ezekiel bread toasted with a cup of herbal tea (although I would prefer coffee).
  5. Favorite cereal? I don’t eat cereal. But when I did, I used to love the sugar-laden kids cereals!
  6. School uniform or no uniform? I went to Catholic school until I was in 6th grade and we wore uniforms there. I think they are a good idea in that they can take away a lot of the peer pressure associated with buying clothes for school. But I also understand that it takes away a kid’s right to show their individuality.
  7. New outfit for first day or no? After wearing uniforms, I loved being able to spend babysitting money to buy myself something new for school.  It’s always nice to be able to make a good first impression!
  8. Walk to school or ride the bus? I did both. At some points in my life I lived too far from school to walk. But when I lived close enough I did like to walk. 
  9. Backpack, tote or messenger bag? Definitely a backpack. It seems to hold so much more!
  10. Eat school lunch or pack lunch? I would never eat a school lunch! Have you seen those school lunches? Yuck!
  11. Remember the little milk cartons? White or chocolate? Chocolate all the way! They only offer chocolate occasionally at the school where I now work. It’s not an everyday option.
  12. Paper bag or lunch box? I had a Scooby Doo lunch box in elementary school. When someone stole that I just started using a paper bag. Now I use a lunch bag so I don’t waste money on paper bags.
  13. Favorite thing to do at recess? Jumping rope and four square
  14. Favorite back to school supply item? There’s nothing like a brand new box of sharpened crayons! I always wanted the 64 count box (although I don’t think my mom ever bought those for me)!
  15. Chalkboard or dry erase board? They didn’t have dry erase boards in school when I was growing up. However, as a teacher I would hate to go back to a chalkboard. All that dust was horrible! Of course if you don’t buy the low odor dry erase markers the smell can be pretty bad!
  16. Regular pencil or mechanical? I hate to write with a dull pencil so mechanical pencils are the ones for me!
  17. Homework as soon as you get home or after dinner? I always did my homework in the evening after I had eaten. Then I could relax on my bed and do it there!
  18. Favorite after school snack? Actually I don’t think I ever had after school snacks. We usually ate dinner fairly early so they weren’t needed.
  19. Favorite after school show? I am not much of a TV watcher so if I was in the living room I would just watch whatever someone else had turned on.
  20. Favorite subject in school? Math all the way! That’s why I became a math teacher  😉 
  21. Least favorite subject in school? Although I find it interesting now, I didn’t really like learning about history in school.
  22. Name of your best friend in high school? Sharon
  23. High school mascot? We were the McCullough Highlanders – we had someone who actually played the bagpipes!
  24. SAT or ACT? SAT
  25. Favorite year in school? 7th grade. That’s when I had a math teacher really challenge me and when I really took an interest in math.
  26. Class ring or no class ring? My parents bought me a class ring. Not sure what happened to it??
  27. Attend or not attend high school reunions? I actually graduated a year ahead of my graduating class so I don’t ever get invitations to my reunions. Most of my friends were 1-3 years older so I probably wouldn’t go anyway.

  1. It’s so funny how important those class rings and then where are they now? I’m not sure either!

  2. I also hate a dull pencil- so annoying

  3. Oh man, the 64 pack of crayons was like the peak of coolness in elementary school! I mean, there were colors that you didn’t even know were actual colors. We have a 128 pack at work in our “procrastination station” and every time I use them, I think about how younger Amber would’ve been drooling over all of the colors!

    Also, my husband is currently taking basic algebra in college, and it is a struggle for both of us! My hat is off to anyone whose brain understands math! 😉

  4. The best part of a pencil is sharpening it and getting that new pencil smell. We were highlanders too! In, I think 4th grade, we were really into double dutch jump rope, so much fun! I wonder if I could still do it. Thanks for linking up with us!

  5. How perfect that you became a teacher! I’d almost forgotten about mechanical pencils. And your mascot is super cool! 🙂 We were the Tigers. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

  6. We didn’t have mechanical pencils, but the best part of a wooden pencil was the excuse to get out of your chair and to sharpen it. It’s amazing how many times a day I would “need” to sharpen my pencil! 🙂
