A little #tbt the first time I ever used a computer was this in my 3rd grade class room taught by Ms. Boyd. Random fact: I remember she loved Billy Ocean and Lionel RIchie music. 

She was a great teacher for me coming into a public school for the first time. 

One of our weekly assignments was to do a little programming by guiding the progress of a 'turtle' which moves around a graphics screen … anyone remember that? Just making basic shapes... those shapes had an impact on me. Since there was only one computer in the classroom, all of us kids would be eagerly waiting to jump on once it was their turn. 

Once it was my turn, I can remember looking at the apple icon on it and studying the shape and colors of it, it seemed to have such an impact when you first looked at the computer, first thing you saw. Later in life I would be creating logos as a designer. 

Little did I know that, this computer was where it all started for me...
