Bayles Elementary School – Dallas, Texas

Bayles Elementary was the first school in Dallas (established 1856). I was a student there from kindergarten through fifth grade.


  • TAG (Talented and Gifted) Program, 4th and 5th grades
  • Favorite teacher: Mrs. Nichols (3rd grade)
  • Wanted to play trombone or saxophone in music class; got stuck playing flute instead
  • 4th Grade TAG research project: audio/visual presentation about ducks
  • 5th Grade TAG research project: animated film about fish
  • In 1976, the Liberty Bell was sent on tour to schools across the USA;  I got to touch it when it came to Bayles
