• Person (living or not) that I’d like to have lunch with and why:
I would love to have lunch with Oprah. I know it sounds cliché, but I admire the things that she has accomplished -- not only for herself but for the world.

• Visiting this place makes me peaceful:

• One item on my “to do” list that I can’t seem to get to:
Deleting unwanted files on my computer

• Details about the teacher I will never forget who inspired me to enter the profession:
My 7th grade Social Studies teacher Mr. Krantweiss inspired me to become a teacher with his very quirky teaching style that showed that he truly cared about us and really enjoyed what he did. He told us that he loved going to work everyday, and it showed. My goal is for all of my students to be able to tell, without me saying a word, that I truly love to be with them, doing what I do.
