  1. My favorite subject in middle school was English. I loved reading all those classic books. I also loved home economics (I don’t even think they have that anymore.) I still remember making donuts and decorating cakes. I am still proud of my guitar pillow that I sewed, especially now that they are so in style.

  2. Hello! Land Ends” rocks! They have so many quality items to choose from. My favorite subject changed from time to time as I aged! English in its’ many forms has always been fun and interesting for me. I especially like the Literature aspect of English. Please enter me in your delightful backpack giveaway drawing. I appreciate it! Thanks, Cindi

  3. I loved reading, especially in the 4th grade, because I had the best teacher! (Mrs. Neely) I also loved science class because we got to do experiments and find out how things work.

  4. Ooooh, I LOVED English and reading!! Escaping into a good book and then being able to write about it was the best….
    So that explains why I teach English now!!

  7. My favorite subject by far was debate – not just because of the subject itself but because my teacher was awesomely inspiring…teaching us the process and value of independent thought!

  10. Hmm…just one favorite subject? I think I would need to choose science. I loved learning about the world around me, especially about the habitats and animals and how every living thing interacts with one another. I learned very early on how our actions impact the rest of the world around us, my 3rd grade teacher had me recycling early on!

  11. From the day I learned how to read that was my favorite thing about school–reading! I also loved art and did tons of my own arts and crafts projects at home.

  13. I really loved art. It was so exciting to see what projects our teacher had come up with each class and I always felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment because it had a definite ending. My grandfather was an artist and it’s exciting to see my own daughter also throwing herself into art projects.

  14. Hmm – I loved reading but I think I liked my computer classes the best – something about creating a program that worked was so fulfilling. I’m not gonna date myself by telling you what we programmed in though. 😉

  15. The anticipation of beginning school to meet my teacher and find out which friends were going to be in my class was always exciting for me. I loved school and art and math were my fav subjects! My daughter loves art as well and I hope she loves school as much as I did.

  16. My favorite subject was always history as well. But really I was always the teacher’s pet and loved school. I can’t wait for my daughter to start school. I hope she will share my love of education and learning.

  17. My favorite subject was spelling. I was (and still am) an avid reader and I loved being able to ace every test without even trying!I can’t say that about any other subject!

  18. I loved languages, French and Spanish. Chemistry was so miserable! I have avoided all sciences and math since then!

  19. I loved history and goverment in high school…it came very easy for me. I college it was spanish… and now I use both as a police officer.

  20. I loved school – my favorite was Advanced Composition in high school. I use the skills I learned in that class all the time even almost 20 years later!

  21. Trapper Keepers, yucky gym class complete with blue striped uniforms and public showering, boys, Michael Jackson, decorating my locker, lunch lines, Def Leppard, Boy George, Motley Crue, Adam Ant, Prince, Wham!, spelling and reading, please no algebra or science, disecting frogs, getting my period for the first time, deodarant, purple, beads on my shoes.

  22. By far, my favorite subject was science! I’d say that math came second. Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy art and music because I’m not artistically inclined AT ALL.

  23. Reading and more reading – I was addicted to books and getting lost in stories and now as a teacher I am trying to instill the love of stories in my students as well as my daughter.

  24. The anticipation of beginning school to meet my teacher and find out which friends were going to be in my class was always exciting for me. I loved school and art and math were my fav subjects! My daughter loves art as well and I hope she loves school as much as I did.

  25. I loved my senior physics class! I was the ONLY female student in the class along with 8 boys. With such an odd number, my lab partner was the only other female in the class, the teacher. And yes, I got an A that year. 🙂
