1. No idea. It was over fifty years ago. My memory isn't that good. My mother told me that she was staying to make sure that I was okay and I (reportedly) told her that she could go because I didn't need her. She sat in the parking lot and cried for nearly an hour. Apparently at six, I was a real jerk.
2. Much more recent, but equally hard to remember. I think it was my Spanish final and a group of us went over to a nearby restaurant and celebrated. Of course, I was working for the college, so I went to school every day anyhow.
3. There were so many - Mr. Rowley, because he encouraged me to write, Mr. Imes because he reassured me that my most valuable asset as an adult was not education, but a sense of humor. John White, who was ultimately my downfall, inspired me to go get my tech theatre degree... and the list goes on.
4. Waits River elementary school
5. Very important. It gave me an education, a career and a husband.
