i don't usually do these anymore... but i like this one (for obvious reasons... haha)

1. Who was your favorite teacher?
in high school, my favorite teacher was Beth Jinkins.
2. Why was that teacher so special?
I love her because she talks to her students like they're people- not children. She doesn't take excuses. She has really high expectations- but they're reasonable, and she understands that "high expectations" vary from person to person. She's hilarious, and uses her humor in her lessons. Plus, she practices what she preaches. She's an incredible musician, so she can use her talents to inspire her students.
3. Do you think teachers get paid enough?
Not at all. We're some of the most important people in a child's life. Sometimes teachers spend more time with a kid than their own parents. Sometimes teachers care more than the kid's parents...
4. Do you have a favorite year of school?
Every year is a new year. I love every fall when we can come back and turn a new leaf and start again, meet brand new people- and still keep in touch with old ones.
5. If you could travel back in time and tell yourself something now that would have helped you get through school, what would you say?
Listen to your parents- they're smarter than you. Life is not as hard as you think it is- and yes, it will get harder. Stop being such a control freak, and learn how to love people the way they are.
