  • I did in junior high and I'm very glad I did. It's a valuable skill to learn.

  • I did way back in the day in jr high. It drives my husband crazy that I can hold a conversation with him, look at him and continue to type. What's my speed, who knows. I haven't been in college for years to even know.

  • In 12th grade I believe. I can type pretty fast but I still look at the keys sometimes. I kick butt at 10 key though.

  • Yep. My senior year. I failed it cause I usually cut...

    But after working at home typing for so long, I am one of the few people I know that can type.

  • I was the last class to learn to type on typewriters in my school. I was horrible until I got playing around on the internet. I am pretty good but I do make mistakes, but at least I can do it and not look at the keyboard like I did in high school. I had a room mate in college that drove me nuts cause she would type her papers late at night when I was trying to sleep and do the hunt and peck typing. I would get frustrated and just type it for her or she would be there ALL NIGHT when I could do it in about 20ish mins.
