As a child ,John was told by his teacher that he would never make it to Harvard.

           First he attended  a Dame and Latin school.  Then he got accepted to Harvard.  Then he Graduated a year early in 1775.  After school was over, he started teaching.  He really did not enjoy this so, he began to study law to fulfill his dream.  He became the lead attorney for the Massachusettes Colony.  One of the cases he was famous for was the Boston Massacare.  He defended all eight of them.  Six were aquitted and two of them were only convicted of manslaughter.  In 1789 he was elected as Vice President.  He thought of that job as being pointless and useless.  Then in 1792 he was elected President. After his term was over he tried to get another term but failed.  After his loss, he moved back home to Massachusettes.
