Yes! Attending Reunion

After becoming a widow at age 26, I discovered that I really have a brain. I went to college, was on the Dean's list many times, earned a BS in Early Childhood Education, a Master's in Elementary Education, Master's in Reading, and a Master's in School Administration. I regret not getting my PHD before retiring after teaching 28 years. Living happily ever after with my husband of 40 years.

School Story

I have no good memories of school. I always wanted to be a wallflower. No one would notice me or expect anything from me. I did not like school.
