What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
“I dabble in oil painting. But I only dabble in it; I’m not very good at it. I can also carve a sick pumpkin!”
If you weren’t a teacher, what would you be?
“I would probably be working a desk job, doing something really boring like filing. My dream job would be a river raft guide in The Northern Woods.”
What’s your favourite thing about being a teacher?
“I really enjoy coming in every day and having one-on-one time with students in our own space. I like the discussions we have, the ideas we have. I like the creativity I see coming from the students. I learn something every day!”
What’s your least favourite thing about being a teacher?
“I don’t like whining.”
What’s one tradition you’ve kept throughout your teaching career?
“We play Jeopardy every day. I started this tradition on my very first period of teaching. I found a Jeopardy calendar in my desk drawer and that just kick started the whole thing.”
