Dekalb College



It was the only period of my life when I enjoyed school!  I had some great teachers!  Dr. Russell (name not changed, unless I forgot it) clearly loved his subject, and he taught Algebra as if each equation was an exciting puzzle to be worked out.  I (who had always hated math and Algebra, and actually flunked Algebra II) now learned to love it.  I can't remember my English Composition teacher's name, but he was excellent (if somewhat less enthused.)  Again, I found joy instead of misery in my writing assignments.  I wonder if I still have some of those papers around here somewhere?  I'll go look.
