1. If you could be one person dead or alive for one day who would it be?


“Probably Alexander the Great just off the top of my head because he must have been something of an evil genius with all he managed to accomplish in such a brief amount of time. It would be interesting to see inside his head.Second maybe I’d like to be the tallest person who ever lived for a day just to see what the weather is like up there.”


2. If you had to teach a grade what grade would you teach and why?


“Seniors. Most of the year is spent waiting to get out, I think it would be pretty easy and fun compared to other grades.”


3. What is one word to describe yourself?


“One word to describe myself is original.”


4. Describe your perfect meal.


“To me the perfect meal is a free of charge unlimited buffet except the food is engineered so that it never goes bad, So hypothetically you could order as much as whatever you wanted and it would just never go bad under any circumstances  whatsoever. You’d never have to buy food ever again and you wouldn’t have to worry during the apocalypse.”


5. What superpower would you want and why?


“Teleportation. Easy. It combines flying and super-speed powers as well as inter dimensional travel. You can go anywhere and see anything you want in an instant.”


6. What has been your most unique pandemic experience?


“Haven’t been able to find the brand Nutella in stores since April 7th.”


7. What is something you like better about online school?


“I get to spend more time with my cats.”


8. If you could bring back one trend what would it be?


“Wearing toga like they did in Ancient Greece and Rome.”


9. If you could do one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?


“Live like Dickie and Marge from The Talented Mr. Ripley.”


10. What is one goal you have for 2021?


“Spend some quality time with Harry Styles and/or Timothee Chalamet.”
