When I'm not at school, I like to...
This was a tough question because even when I am not at school, more than 50% of the time I am still doing work. I like to do work and improve procedures or lessons. Besides work, I do like to eat at a restaurant with my husband and my family. I also like to play with my nephew and niece.

What's your favorite book? Why?
My favorite book is “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury. This is my favorite book because it makes you wonder about how America will be in the future. In this book, actual books are forbidden in houses. If someone has books and the government finds out, firefighters come to the house and create a fire in the house to burn the books and the house. It amazed me how a firefighter’s job switched from stopping fires like they do today to creating fires. It made me wonder about a world where books were forbidden and all the knowledge and fun the world would lose. I enjoy books that make me wonder.

My hero is my husband. He is very compassionate and dedicated to his schooling and to his family. He is serious about work, but also loves to have fun. He makes me become a better and more balanced person.
