I attended the first computer class given at my high school in 1965.   
It was kind of a funny situation - one other student and I taught the  
teacher, who then taught the rest of the class.  The two of us had  
been messing about with computers for two years at that point, and  
knew a LOT more than the teacher.  The course was taught from an  
obscure little book which illustrated all of its concepts in an  
assembler code for a non-existent machine.  To facilitate the class,  
I wrote an emulator (in FORTRAN) for the assembler language which was  
used for several years after I graduated.  It was a fun time to be  
into computers - when most people still didn't know what a computer was.
