Math, math and more math. For some reason our Creator decided to bless me with an absolutely logical, mathmatical mind. And not much else.

I hated high school, but had a couple of favorites.

In high school: Geometry, world history and Spanish

In college: anything do to with my major lol

Not many of you mentioned Shop class. What are you, a bunch of geeks?

It's what I teach now. Guess I'm lucky - in my 50's and still in high school.

Trade ya. I'm a math tard and it's the bane of my existence. I have to go into Science "lite" due to my utter inability to work with numbers. I'd be a Biologist or a Physical Anthropologist if I was halfway ok with Math.

There was no such thing at my high school. There were 34 people in my senior class.

Shop class was cool, but every day was shop class for me. My father owns a hardwood flooring/construction company so every day I learn something new from him.

School sucked for me until my senior year. That year rocked - just had history/government, orchestra, electronics (vocational, double length class), and I was on the school paper running the computer side of things. That school paper class was a boondogle. We got to leave school all the time and I often went on "assignment" around school - which meant lots of smoke breaks.

Overall I would have to say orchestra was the best class I took. Six years of fiddling around, enjoyed most of it. I agree with some above that my interest in actually learning didn't exist until college.

Sex Ed or Drivers Ed. My school used the same horse for both classes though and I would sometimes get confused. That was a bit embarrassing when it happened.
