What Should I Do When I Grow Up

When I was at my parents' house for Christmas, they sent me back with a pile of things that they saved. I sorted through some of it then, and I was looking through more of it now (instead of grading papers). In addition to my kindergarten report card (which indicated that by the end of kindergarten that I was reading* on a fourth grade level overall but could read some things at a fifth grade level), I found this interest survey that I took back in 1987.

What I need to find is the report card from when I got a C in math. I'd like to show that to my students. I'd explain why I got a C in math: I wasn't paying attention in class, and I wasn't doing the problems.

*I get some of my obnoxious attitude from my mother. She was of the opinion that it's the parents' responsibility to send their kids to school already knowing how to read.
