While on the Steve Harvey Show, Hillary Clinton confused the Constitution with the Declaration of Independence. That’s right, folks. Hillary Rodham Clinton made a mistake. Surprising. She was explaining her opinion on gun control and said, and I quote, “Constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”. As you probably know, that quote was actually written by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. It isn’t the first mistake she made, but it’ll stick with her and the people. If you need some evidence because you think it’s false, here’s a link. Have an awesome day.
1.) What inspired you to be a teacher?
I never wanted to teach, I just kind of fell into it. I was working with a company that was going to relocate to New York. I didn’t want to move to NewYork, so I volunteered in my child’s kindergarten class. It turned out, I really liked it! So, I started teaching my own classes.
2.) How many different subjects have you taught in your career?
I’ve taught six to seven subjects, including all the four primary subjects.
3.) What do you think of the way that the schedule of the sixth grade is set up this year compared to last year? (Meaning a comparison of the amount of teachers and moving around)
I don’t feel any different about it because I’m teaching the same amount of time periods, but I do miss working with Mrs. Gagnon – the boss!
4.) What is you favorite subject?
History and Literature
5.) Where is somewhere that you have visited and liked and somewhere you would like to travel to?
I’ve loved so many: I love anything in Europe, South America, as well as Israel, Jordan, and Malta. I would like to visit Bora Bora (an island).
6.) What other grades have you taught?
Kindergarten, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, eight grade,and ninth grade
7.) Do you have a favorite tie?
Yes it has a handprint pattern on it.
8.) What is one very important thing that keeps a classroom going?
Motivation is important. Keeping my students motivated and myself motivated.
9.) Do you have anything to say to your former students?
Please come back and visit often!
10.) Do you think this interview went well?
Yes very well. I was surprised that you picked me over other teachers.
Interviewed on October 30, 2014
Interviewers: Julia Menaker and Meghan Brady
(Notice how we chose the day closest to Halloween 😛 )
Just kidding 🙂
The 5-12 band teacher was interviewed by our very own Julia Grimm.
What inspired you to be a band teacher?
I had a great high school band teacher, and I’ve always loved music.
How do you handle your crazy band students?
I try to keep a sense of humor.
Rate strawberry poptarts 1-10, 1 being the worse and 10 being the best.
I’d say a 7.5
Is coke your favorite drink?
I’d say ice coffee is.
JG How many instruments do you play?
I play all of the primary instruments. But I don’t play them all well, just enough to get students started. I would’t make anyone pay to hear me play the saxophone.
Do you wish there were piano and string instruments in the band too?
No. But only because piano and string instruments aren’t band instruments. But, it would be nice to have kids have the opportunity to play piano and string instruments if they wanted to.
Do you think this interview went well?
Yes, Julia, it was a pleasure talking to you!
