School Days #31Days

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

My topics may be bouncing around a bit, so when this is over, feel free to arrange them as you wish! Today I want to discuss schooling. Growing up, did you go to public or private school, or were you home schooled? Do you know anything about the schools your parents attended? What about your grandparents? Did your family members go on to college or university? What do they have degrees in? How about you?

All of my family members went to public schools as kids. My children attend a private Jewish school. Both of my parents graduated from Rutgers University – as did both Dave and I! My dad got a BS in Pharmacy, I believe, and went on to get an MBA. My mom majored in math and got a Masters Degree in I think Computer Science. Dave was a business major and also got his MBA (also from Rutgers) and I was a Communication and Jewish Studies double major. I then went on to get my Masters Degree in Social Work from Yeshiva University. By the way, my brother also got his BS from Rutgers, as did one of Dave’s sisters!

Feel free to tell me about your family’s schooling in the comments or by leaving a link to your post!
