What's one thing your students don't know about you? I took introductory Spanish three times.
Who most influenced your decision to teach? I have had many excellent and inspiring teachers. My high school orchestra conductor, Mr. Hageman, was one of the best.
When you're listening to music, who's playing? I'm all over the map. In addition to anything with a cello in it, I've been listening to a lot of Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, Florence and the Machine, REM, Lumineers, and Alabama Shakes lately.
If you didn't teach, what would you be doing instead? Mechanics experiments in a biology lab.
What's your favorite North Cross tradition? Is Bojangles Day a tradition, or just a good idea?
