FLASHBACK FRIDAY WITH MRS. KATHERINE NETTLES

Language Arts Teacher at Daphne Middle


What middle school did you attend? What years did you attend?

Mrs. Nettles attended Monroeville Junior High and attended during the years of 2000-2004.


What activities were you involved in?

She was involved in cheerleading, softball, Beta Club, band and yearbook.


What were you like in middle school?

Mrs. Nettles was bad at math. She had her first big boyfriend at the time so it was dramatic. She was sensitive when she got something wrong.


What bands, movies, TV shows were your favorite?

She said her favorite shows were Boy Meets World and Even Stevens. She would hide burned CDs in her closet cause her dad would get mad. She would turn the volume really low and listen to them so her parents couldn't hear.


What was your prized possession or favorite thing?

Mrs. Nettles said that her pictures were her favorite thing. She said she had a wall full of collages in her room.
