  1. I remember the days leading up to the beginning of the new school year. We got so excited about our new school supplies, new teacher, new classroom, even the new homework. It was fun to get back in the swing of things. My favorite subject by far was English. I love to read.

  2. I absolutely loved art history in 5th grade. My friend’s mom was a curator at our local museum and volunteered to teach art history to us. Fun!

  3. My favorite subject was math. I used to take 3 or 4 math classes per semester in high school (math, math team, math sat prep…)

  4. I’m going back to school full time at the ripe old age of 32. My daughter is 7 months and I hope that I can teach her how important education is. Of course, now that I’ve quit my job a free backpack would be super helpful!

  5. I loved (still do) music. For a long time I wanted to a music teacher. Now, I don’t know what I want to be when I “grow up”.

  6. my favorite experience was 2nd grade science fair! I knew my project was the best, but I was placed 2nd to the cutest guy in school so I didnt mind!

  7. Oh, English by far. I started keeping a list of the books I read in 4th grade. I still keep the list and love to look back over all the books I’ve read from childhood until the present.

  8. Definitely math. I went on to major in civil engineering but now I use those high level skills I learned on my two sons!

  9. It was a math/science toss up for me! But then I guess they could kind of be considered the same subject much of the time. 🙂

  10. I enjoyed a lot of subjects: instrumental music, geography, science. But in grade 12 I *loved* math. I don’t know why. In any case, I was inspired to take grade 13 calculus (where I went to school, grade 13 was required for university admission) in summer school. The whole course in 4 weeks. The first class, the teacher leaned on his desk, chuckled meanly, and announced, “Five hours a day of math; your worst nightmare.” Indeed, whatever crazy love I’d developed for math in grade 12 was long over by the time I sat the final calculus exam!

  11. I loved algebra. I know, I’m strange… 🙂 But I had a great teacher and she made it “click” for me. And there was something satisfying in solving for “y”.

  12. English and drama were always my favorite classes. I suppose that’s why I am now a reading and writing teacher in a middle school (i.e. academics plus never-ending drama).

  13. I was a band geek. I looked forward to band class every day. Looking back I can see how awkward I was, but at the time I really enjoyed myself!

  14. Well, this will come as no surprise. My favorite classes were Public Speaking, Composition, AP Composition and Journalism. 🙂

  15. My favorite subject would have to be Government. I know I’m weird. I found it extremely fascinating how everything worked.

  16. Biology was by far my favorite. Not quite the amount of writing required for langauge arts, but not as abstract as math.

  17. My most vivid school memory was 4th grade and how terrible it was for me. My oldest daughter is now in fourth grade and I am looking forward to erasing my old memories with great ones this year!

  18. Mine was Spanish, and boy I am lucky I did well in that class because hubby is from Guatemala and I wouldn’t be able to talk very much to him if I didn’t study Spanish in school! Everyone thought it was funny that a girl from a French-Canadian family living in Maine would be taking Spanish, but it certainly came in handy now, didn’t it?

  19. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved art.
    I can remember drawing and painting for hours on end, even before I started school.
    I went on toe get two advanced degrees in art and I am now a full-time professional ceramic artist.

  20. I loved English – i can never get enough of a good book – too bad I don’t have tons of time to read these days!!!

  21. Geometry was my fave. I had ever theorem and postulate memorized word for word. I wonder if I remember any of it now? Haha…

  22. Since I grew up in a small town, my favorite subject was social studies where we learned about foreign cultures and different social systems. That’s probably why my favorite hobby is traveling. My mother always said I always had one foot out the door.

  23. I loved art class! One of my fondest memories is winning an art contest in kinder about self portraits. I drew myself looking out a window, and i was one of the winners. It got hung in the hall of my elementary school. Some 20 years later, and it’s still there! (Wonder if i can ask to keep it! LOL)

  24. I always liked English, because it was easy for me and I got A’s on my papers. I dreaded PE and would spend most of the period hiding in the outfield during kickball and praying the ball wouldn’t head toward me.

  25. I loved my english literature class. I could curl up with a good book for hours and hours and hours! Although my “me” time is very limited nowadays, that’s still my #1 go-to when I have a few minutes to myself!

  26. My favorite subject was music in elementary school. I went to school in S.F. and there was not a dedicated classroom for our weekly music class. We met in an alcove in the cafeteria. I still remember the smell of mac and cheese and the dreaded fish sticks as we made our way through the cafeteria. Only on the days that they were serving roasted turkey and mashed potatoes, did I look forward to music class!
