    My favorite school memories are of third grade and our teacher Mrs. Theis. She really knew how to motivate the class which was about 75 percent rough and tumble boys. If we got all of our in class assignments done without her having to discipline the class through the week, we were rewarded every Friday afternoon. Those Fridays came often because everyone got to bring in their favorite records and board games. Then we’d get to play games and listen to music and talk and just have fun after lunch until school let out on Friday afternoon. Once in a while there was a bad week with boys being disruptive often during the week and we didn’t get through all our assignments on time, which of course meant no fun Friday afternoon. Yet, her motivating factors made every subject fun, informative and she would give one on one time to those students who weren’t catching on quickly to the subject at hand. I’m sure her many years of teaching experience helped her in keeping such a rough and tumble class in line, but I didn’t see her that way. I saw her back then as a sweet, tiny, pudgy old lady with gray hair who I wished sometimes was my grandmother.

    I had a fifth grade teacher that read to us every day after lunch and recess. He read Winnie the Pooh and The Snow Treasure and countless other books that caught our immaginations. Mr. Hirst was the best. Elemendorf Air Force Base, Anchorage, Alaska! 1962-1963.

    My favorite school memory is my 6th grade teacher Mrs. Vandergriff. She took an interest in me and would talk to me about everything. I remember thinking wow she really cares about me. That meant so much considering that my home life was bad. I think Mrs. Vandergriff could tell I needed someone to care about me. I made good grades when I turned in my work and I was quiet. I didn’t have nice things or many clothes. Mrs. Vandergriff made me feel like I was as good as anyone else because she never talked down to me, she built me up and made me smile everyday.

    My favorite school memory involves a very silly choreographed dance routine performed at the talent show in 5th grade by myself & my 3 best (only) friends. We jumped & wiggled to -what else – “Everybody Dance Now” by C&C Music Factory. Glorious!

    In 5th grade, I won the art contest from all of the entire school entries!

    My favorite high school memory is Thanksgiving day football games. The weather was frosty, expectations were high and the anticipation of turkey and stuffing kept us warm and happy.
