College Starts In Kindergarten

As the poem from the author, Robert Fulghum states, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. The kindergarten wing was all a buzz with words of wisdom from the young scholars. Everything these young people need to know starts in kindergarten and builds till they reach college. Mrs. Henning decided to ask her students what they would like to study in college. Here are a few of their answers.

Jack said, "In college, I want to learn how to be a teacher." Emerson's thoughts were quite exciting, "In college, I want to learn a lot of math to be a marine biologist!" Kevin had a great idea! He said, "In college, I want to learn to be a lawyer like my dad." Campbell had lots of thoughts on the subject, but decided that "In college, I want to learn to be an artist." Ben's ideas were just as good, he said, "In college, I want to learn how to be a taekwondo master!"  Vicki's thoughts roamed to animals. She said, "In college, I want to learn to be a vet." Ciera also was thinking all about animals, she said, " In college, I want to be a pet doctor!" Ty's ideas went to where lots of boys his age go. He said, "In college I want to learn how to play sports." Well, no matter where life leads these young people, they all know that college does start in kindergarten.
