I have many memories of being in my classes at the Milford Elementary School (see photo below) in Milford, Pennsylvania. I got on the bus quite early in the morning with my three siblings and had a long ride to our two-story school in town. We went there for first grade through sixth grade. Our desks were usually in rows and we always sat in alphabetical order. Since my last name began with an "R", I usually sat in the back of the row. My favorite part of the day in first grade (this is my actual first grade photo) was when we went to the reading table to spend time with our "Dick and Jane" readers. I also vividly remember a walking field trip to a Candle Shop in town to see how candles were made. I always enjoyed learning about history and literature. After 6th grade we moved on to the Delaware Valley Junior High School and in 9th grade we moved to the Delaware Valley High School. My favorite elementary school teacher was Mr. Webster in sixth grade.
