In the beginning I found attending college rather overwhelming. The classes were large and filled with strangers. Thank heavens as the years went by it got much better. My fondest memory was singing Handel's Messiah with the college choir.
My favorite hang-out was the Grill, which was adjacent to the cafeteria. My friends and I would eat hamburgers and talk. My favorite song was Surfin' USA by the Beach Boys; the fad for girls was to wear wool skirts and saddle shoes; and one of the most popular expresssions was "Make love, not war".
Dr. Leland Perry, my speech teacher, was very friendly and helpful. He would talk with me and he even knew my name. He was also very good at giving advice.
After college, I married my high school sweetheart, and we had three children. After they were born I started working in Paramount as a primary teacher. After teaching 38 years, I am currently retired. I have the luxury of substituting and volunteering at my school. On my spare time I enjoy water aerobics, reading, scrapbooking, and knitting.
I received an excellent education at LBSC. My education classes prepared me for my teaching position in Paramount. Because of CSULB, I had a wonderful teaching career. I worked with dedicated teachers and wonderful students.
