Me Poster circa 1985

Since I'm apparently 8 1/2 years old at its creation, my best guess is that this is a poster completed at the beginning of the 4th grade school year or at the end of the 3rd grade year. My birthday is in December so it could go either way, but this kind of seems more like the type of project kids would do at the beginning of the school year.

At this time, I guess I wanted to be a post office worker when I grew up. Only a year later (as I read another of my essays) I had gravitated toward being an archaeologist or someone working with computers.

For me, the best part is the listing of things I don't like: Pickles, balloons and thieves (including a drawing of a thief with requisite black eye mask!).

I kind of love that you've posted these. I'm just saying.

Also, do you remember who you had as a teacher in those years?

Oh, yes. Nostalgia is such a huge part of my being that I cling tightly to all my childhood memories. In third grade I had Mrs. Smith (3-2), fourth grade Mr. Miller (4-2) and fifth grade Mr. Gustafson (5-3). I think you were in at least one of those (3rd?).

I do have all of my class photos hidden somewhere. I would love to dig them out and scan them as well.

I was in Mrs. Smith's class & then Mr. Miller's class with you. I think I had Mr. Hage for 5th, but all those teachers kind of blend together, you know? Miller/Campbell/Gustafson/Hage. It's like I kind of had all 4 of them?
