Kindergarten - Look What You Did To Me! - Thank You!

Ahhh, kindergarten. For most kids it was a time of innocence and social interaction.

For me, it was a different story....

Growing up in New York City, kindergarten was a tough place.

The curriculum was NOT easy....

Craig Rutman, your Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor never really received a report card like this one!

The schoolyard taunts were brutal....

Schoolyard taunting is NOT a good thing!

The rejections came swift and often....

Thanks ladies. And don't act surprised. You know who you are!

But did I let any of that effect me?

Well, truth be told, yes I did!

But it was experiences like these that helped shape who I am today.

I was able to take those experiences and,

being the eternal optimist that I am, find the positives in them.

Those positives made me want to help others.

They made me want to make people laugh and feel good about themselves.

And those positives made me work hard to be the best I could be regardless of who and what I encountered in my day to day life.

So, while it wasn't easy growing up in New York City, all I can say about the experience is I think I turned out OK, I've achieved a moderate level of success, have pretty much everything I could ever want, and my Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area home buying and selling clients enjoy working with me.

And it all started out in Kindergarten!

Kindergarten - Look What You Did To Me! - Thank You!

Growing up in NYC wasn't easy. But I think I turned out OK!

Jill - Thank you Jill. I can't remember the school in Mahanttan. But in 4th grade I attended PS-165 in Kew Gardens, Queens.

Liz - Spoken like a true 718'er!!!

So funny. I grew up in Forest Hills but when I first got married, we lived in Kew Gardens for 6 years.

Jill - I lived in the garden apartments at the corner of Jewel Avenue and Main Street! Who knew we were neighbors?
