Kristen Witt, the new principal at Fairfield High School, remembers her first day of high school and the mix of anxiousness and excitement that came with it.
Credit, perhaps, completing at least a school year for the welcome with which several Fairfield High School sophomores and juniors greeted the first day of classes Wednesday.
“I like school and learning,” Courtney Franklin said. “I’m a nerd,” she added with a smile.
Franklin, 16, a junior, wants to attend Columbia University in New York and become a cardiac surgeon.
Aubrianna Glynn, 16, who hopes to study child psychology at the University of California, Davis, said going back to school, “means I have something to do all day.”
