I went through the first through the fourth grade and never really learned how to read. It turns out I was dyslexic, but at that time they didn’t have a title for it. When I hit the fifth grade, I had a teacher named Mr. Schwick who looked how you would imagine Scrooge looking. But this man taught me how to read, he opened a whole world for me, so that’s my most memorable experience. And I haven’t stopped reading since.

My most vivid, though definitely not favorite, memory had to do with the elementary school spelling bee. I was our class champion speller and advanced to the school finals, which were held in the gymnasium with students, teachers and parents watching. I received the word ballet, which normally would have been a slam dunk. When I walked to the microphone to speak in front of all those people, my brain was suddenly completely shorted out.

My favorite memory from elementary school would have to be playtime. As a busy high school senior, playtime seems like it would be really relaxing now.
