I was watching Live with Kelly and the conversation turned to remembering your favorite teacher while you were growing up. I absolutely hated school...all grades. The only teacher I remember is Mrs. Bean in Vermont. She was my 4th grade teacher and the only reason I remember her is that I was sitting in her classroom the day they announced President Kennedy had been shot.

I was never very good in school and often found myself lost in day dreams. I played hookie a lot, too, when I was in high school. Yes, I was a rebel:)

Debbie...I wasn't a big fan of school either but knew I needed my diploma (back then college was much more of an option) and my goal in life was to graduate and get a job so I could support myself...I was driven and determined. I started working in an office the summer of 11th grade and continued to do so (part-time) during my senior year (and thereafter).

I had lots of hard teachers that I wasn't fond of at ALL but the thing is that they taught me the most and I learned solid skills I used the rest of my life. I'm grateful to them for that. I never played hookey because it was just too much of a struggle to stay current with homework and maintain average grades (a bit above in some subjects). There was homework EVERY day so it was not worth trying to make-up whatever I would have missed. Towards my self-imposed end goal, failing a grade was not an option.

I was a social rebel;)

LOL...we all have different goals in life and head toward them on different paths. As long as we reach them I guess that's all that matters.

I was great in English, loved history, hated the rest. I think Math ruined it for me. To this day I still have a problem with numbers.
