When I started Kindergarten, I was living in the townhouses at Rockwood, in St. Catharines. The school I started kindergarten in was Applewood (interestingly this was my oldest two daughters kindergarten school as well). I was 4 years old. I already knew how to read, add, subtract etc. Generally, I walked to school, altho I recall that sometimes on rainy or stormy days I would take a taxi to the school, which I would pay for with coins in a little purse of mine that my mother would give me.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the above photo was my kindergarten school picture.
Usually I walked to school with friends. I think my teachers name was Mrs Brick. I remember the room had play centers set up including a pretend kitchen.
During the year I moved, and then attended kindergarten at Edith Cavell. I think my teachers name there was Mrs Hannah. I walked to school every day and the kindergarten class had their own door. I remember calling the teacher Mrs Brick by accident a few times.
At the time I was known as Kristina Foster. My report cards are probably around here somewhere...maybe even a class photo.
I remember that walking to Edith Cavell took me over a bridge that was over train tracks, and sometimes we would stand on the bridge and count train cars. I remember at Edith Cavell being friends with Beth, Ryan, Jimmy, and I think those were all from kindergarten.
