Now to get comfortable in the rocking chair and stroll down memory lane:
Orchard School, Garfield School, West High School, all of these school years were a challenge to me as I did not like school that well. We came from a low to middle income family and that didn't sit too well with some of the other students, especially as I entered Jr. High and High School. I am jumping ahead somewhat so let's back up a little and I'll give you a little insight into my younger School years.
==First through Sixth grade:I fondly remember a very nice teacher in my second grade but her name escapes me at the present time and I am unable to find anything in these memory boxes that tells me her name. I remember her being so kind and compassionate towards me and always helping me to feel as though no question was a dumb question.
As I advanced to Sixth grade it became harder and harder for me to socially relate to the other children and I remember not having anyone I could really call a close friend other than a cousin of mine and to me, at that age, that did not really count.
Seventh through Twelfth grade:
I was bussed all the way across town to the ritzy neighborhood school...WestHigh...So much for integration helping us underpriveledged students.(HUH) Oh well, by this time in my life I had learned to pretty much accept our status and the fact that others weren't going to allow me to fit in so I became pretty much a loner.
Oh my, there are some report cards here in this memory box,I actually did pretty well except in History class.( took it over in summer school). I was able to keep the grades up enough to graduate. That was the best day ever when I could leave school behind and enter the real world... or so I thought at that time.
God has seen me through those trying times of school and many other times in my life and I continue to lean on HIM daily.
I hope this has given all of you a little more insight into who this Pam Fidler is and was.
I look forward to you entering other rooms with me here at the
Bye for now, May the love of Christ surround you in every one of your days!!
