What are your favorite Arthur Hill memories?

The Morning after my 18th birthday I was absolutely Hung over.
We had the Constitutional convention at the Civic Center that morning
with Mr Newman/Fullerton as our Government Teacher.
He took one look at me and actually got me Alka Seltzer,
had me put the tablets in my Mouth..
get water from the Water fountain..
hold it in my mouth while it fizzed because we had no glass and then Swallow...
I truly learned a lot that day but none of it was Government...
#1 It Pays to have a paper Cup handy
#2 Drinking is Bad
#3 Teachers can be your friend
#4 Drinking is Bad.

If you had the chance, would you go back and relive your high school years, and if yes, what would you differently?

Yes.. I loved High School and I dont think I would change much..
Maybe I would have taken one of those Foreign Language Classes and I would have liked to have attended at least One Dance.

What's left on your "bucket list?"

hmmm...
not much left.
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2006 so that put the bucket list into Perspective.
Things I thought I really wanted to do before checking out all of a sudden just
didn't seem as important anymore..
now my Bucket list is..
LIVE TODAY and Make certain everyone knows I love them.
I would like to Complete my Dual Citizenship Ireland so that my
children can enjoy that opportunity as well and would like to have a Residence back in NY soon.

Who was/were your favorite teacher(s) and why?

Mr Newman "Fullerton" Had the best time in Journalism with him, he treated us like true individuals instead of just Students.

What were your favorite classes?

Sue was a Great friend of mine..  Im not even certain if I remember how we met but she lived about 4 blocks up from me on Harrison when I first moved here from Brooklyn. . Maybe we sat close in homeroom because of our names but we were good friends all through Highschool.   She was diabetic and she introduced me to one of her friends, Lori Eimers, a year older then us who attended Eisenhower .. She was diabetic too and became a great friend to me as well..  BOTH passed now and for quite some time.  We dont think of Diabetes in the same way as other Killers but we should.   I miss them both even today I think of what Sue would have laughed at  or what Eimers would be like at this point in our lives.    I'll see them again though..
