What is your favorite thing about your career?


If you weren’t a teacher, what would you do?

If I wasn’t teaching I would become a professional man of leisure! I would travel the world, learn about all kinds of things, and volunteer as much as possible.

What is one of your life goals?

I still hope someday to become a firefighter or maybe Batman!

What is the one thing you couldn’t teach without?

Coffee! I have tried doing it without coffee, and the results were not good.
