This is a memoir to use to teach about memoir writing. It’s a story of my experiences growing up as a child of a community college secretary, and then, as a community college student. The interactions I had with the community college back then, in the 1970s, greatly influenced my life’s trajectory. The last chapter contains an assignment I use in college writing: The Mini-Memoir.
