School Days, Reminiscences of the first 25

School Days, Reminiscences — the first 25

Every Sunday evening for the past twenty-five weeks, I have been sharing the school reminiscences of members of my blogging community. As well as being a way of thanking them for their support, it was a way to get to know them a little better and of letting you know about their services and publications.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the conversations that have developed around each individual’s reminiscences and I think, it is fair to say, we have learned much from each other. It is pleasing to see that new friendships have formed and the interest in each others’ work has grown.

I thought this was a good time to pause and reflect on the journeys of those we’ve met so far. If you haven’t yet and would like to join in by sharing your school days reminiscences, please let me know in the comments and I’ll send you the questions.

If you missed reading any of the first 25 reminiscences, click on the photos to check them out. The interviews contain links to the writers’ blogs, website and/or publications. Enjoy!

      Twenty-five is the class size in lower primary over here (30 for older grades). I thought about that too as I put the post together. I was quite surprised how many had participated. I hadn’t thought about it as I posted them from week to week.

      I couldn’t believe it was 25 either, Debby. That’s half a year’s worth of interviews. Phew! There are still a few more to go. I’ll publish them as they come in. 🙂

      Thanks, Pete. It’s been great to have your involvement, both in sharing your own reminiscences and in commenting on others’. The conversations on each post have really added to the interest.

    What a great gallery and hall of fame, Norah. I totally enjoyed my conversation with the comments on my post. I certainly appreciated reading all other bloggers post also. You did a great job of hosting these fun reminiscences.

    Thanks once again, Nora.I enjoyed reading all the interesting reminiscences of bloggers – always slightly different as we all are. Childhood is such a small part of most of our lives and yet it is the most important, education-wise. Hugs xx

      Thank you for being an important part of the series, Joy. You added a different aspect with your reminiscences. It wouldn’t have been the same without you.

        I have an appreciation for maths too. I liked it earlier and liked it late but not in those high school days in between. I am a compulsive reader and compulsive counter. I real the same signs on the back of toilet doors, and everywhere else, over and over. I can’t help myself. I count everything too – steps I go up etc. Well, maybe not everything, but it’s surprising how often I find myself counting. It gives me something to do. 🙂
