We all know snacks are an important part of staff meetings. What are your favorite snacks? Twizzlers and animal crackers.
You are co-leading a 6th grade Beyond the Bell/Pride Time team with Mr. Wells. What are your favorite things about your team and working alongside Mr. Wells so far this year? Working with Mr. Wells has been great! We have a unique and diverse team, and I think we both bring different qualities to the table. We really know how to complement each other, which makes our team both fun and structured. It's really been interesting working with a 6th grade team because a lot of them were in Pride Time last year and know more about it than I do! I'm really excited to see the strides and progress our team makes throughout this year; I see really good things in their future. They're a great group of kids with a lot of energy!!
What is something about yourself that we couldn’t tell by looking at you? I am multilingual. I am proficient in Czech and Slovakian in addition to English.
Do you believe that you are born smart or get smart? I believe that an individual’s journey through life is a growing and learning experience. I think people make mistakes along the way and that is part of the learning process. There is always room for individuals to learn something new- whether they are young and naive or old and wise. I believe you never fully stop learning and that anyone who opens themselves up to take in new knowledge, whatever it may be, can be "smart" in their own way.
Where do you want to be in five years? San Diego :) Or somewhere by the water!
What is one of your favorite quotes? "Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day." -Paulo Coelho
