September = 09
Will you be attending college/school? Absolutely not! When I went to school we did not have kindergarten but started with Grade 1. I went to a school in Kirkfield Park but I don’t remember the name of it for Grade 1 and Grade 4. I then went to St. Mary’s Catholic School for Grade 2 and Grade 3. In Grade 5, I went to Frontenac and for Grade 6, I went to Howden. For Grade 7 and 8, I went to Beliveau and for Grade 9, I went to Pierre Radisson. Grade 10 to 12, I went to Windsor Park Collegiate.
Do you like fall better than summer? Yes, fall is my favourite season of the year. I love the cool air and the warm colours. I love the promise of Christmas just around the next corner.
Did you have any great teachers? No, and as a matter of fact I remember one horrible teacher. She taught me Grade 4 and she was mean. One of the reasons she may not have liked us was because there were so many and we were as poor as church mice. Of course I will never know the real reason she didn’t like me but I do know that she was an adult and I was only nine years old. I actually remember her convincing other girls not to play with me and not invite me to their birthdays. Another time she tangled with the wrong woman – my mother. She phoned my mother and said that I was a slow learner and wanted to put me in a different class. Well there were fireworks going off over that one. Before her class I had always been at the top of my class.
