What was your favorite subject in high school? Why do you think this was? And does what you do now have anything to do with what it was? I personally loved my math classes, calculus in particular. I think this was because I had a crush on my teacher! She was so up beat and cute, she was pretty young too. Anyways, I also always loved math! Now I am going to grad school in physics, which uses a lot of math, and I think my enjoyment of these subjects in high school is what led me to where I am today.

My favorite high school class was art, and I did use it a lot in my last job. I also loved math and science. My worst subject was history, I hated that class.

My favorite sugject in high school was art. It still is my favorite subject. I am an artist trying to go to an art college so it would only make sense, right? Indeed. Art is the best subject, next to psychology, in the world.

I would have to say Speech & Drama, which was taught by a very eccentric old bachelor who had been an actor in the traveling tent shows in the Midwest. He had some very interesting stories to tell as he had met many famous actors and writers in his travels.

Uhm, my favorite was also Calculus not because of the teacher though. But I just love that subject because it was a new math subject. Also, it proved to be useful when I entered college. But I hate Calculus in College. :) Yeah math is useful, I agree. All subjects use it. No one can deny that. :)

Social Studies was mine. Not because of the subject matter. But because of my teacher. I was a sophomore. And I had a wonderful teacher. He was a short lil guy named Mr Stelmach. HE reminded me of Jerry Lewis as the Nutty professor. But he had this way of making his class exciting. I looked forward to it daily.

My Favorite was English..I guess it's because it's something I am good at both oral and written.I also loved reading. When I was young I don't speak any language than English because my cousins from the states came here in the Philippines so since I was young and they talk to me in English that's what I excelled more in. Math was a no no for me..I always got low grades there.

I love English. My teachers are so sarcastic, but it's funny. I always love how deep the discussions get, because the situations in the stories always relate back to life. Another favourite of mine is Math, just because I always do better than the other kids! haha

Probably German, which I didn't take until my senior year. My college degree ended up being German, my husband is German (kinda sorta) and we get visitors from Germany, so I do use it. Not career-wise though...

In high school, I absolutely loved P.E. i mean not the studying part but the part where you got to play soccer, basketball, netball, softball, tennis, badminton,etc. and I loved art. plus all my teachers were young they were all in their mid 20's to their early 30's which made the teacher-student relationship much more interesting... oh and I went to a boarding school.... so we got to hang out a lot doing extra cca's.

My favoite subject was English. I used to help other students with their English homework. I absolutely love it. English, writing, reading, all came easy for me. I was TERRIBLE at math. More specifically algebra. I don't understand it at all. It was a very difficult subject for me. It was just...bad. lol.

My favorite subject had to be Performing Arts. I loved it and it even included Shakespeare plays which I truly adore. I loved watching movies and interpreting roles. I also had fun doing acting exercises. I'm aiming to be a psychiatrist. I don't think it will have anything to do with my future job but that's okay. I'll always love it.

I used to like all them! But specially History, Literature, Portuguese, and calculus. I think it's easier to ask what of them I didn't use to like. And my answer will be: Geography and English. Well... I'm Brazilian and that's because I studied Portuguese at school.

My favorite subject in High School was choir, I love to sing and it also helps with math by counting beats, it also teaches you how to read music.I joined in middle school with my friends because I needed an extra course.But then I got hooked on it so followed it to high school the whole time I was there, it was the only class I got an A in for once, it was enjoyable and my teacher was funny as all heck.
