Seven Question Slam: Mrs. Gay

Jason Kloch, Contributor

Q: What’s the hardest part about being a teacher?

A: I would say one of the hardest things is trying to give every student one-on-one time.  I know that it is beneficial for students to have a teacher give direct input on their work and to have it explained.  However, depending on the course and class size, that is not always possible.  Every day I try my hardest to reach all students.

Q: Who or what is your motivation?

A: I love to see students excited about math and excited about working hard to solve a problem.  I am genuinely motivated by students gaining confidence and reaching success.

Q: If you had all the money to move to a new place, where would you go?

A: I love my job, but if I had unlimited money I would be traveling the world and seeing new places. I would then volunteer my time to help people in need.

Q: What is your favorite genre of music?

A: I like a lot of different types of music, while I do not listen as much anymore, my favorite genre, when I was in high school, was punk rock.  I saw many Dashboard Confessional, Brand New, and The Starting Line concerts.

Q: What are your thoughts on technology?

A: I think technology is the way of the future, and I am so happy that students now have Chromebooks.

Q: Do you think comedy has downgraded, improved, or has no changed?

A: I do not really watch enough comedy to have an opinion on this.

Q: Do you have a dream job and would you rather have that job than the one you have now?

A: My dream job would be to be a professional athlete. I do not have a particular sport in mind, but it would be pretty awesome to be an elite athlete and get paid millions of dollars! Not to mention potentially going to the Olympics.
