Seven Question Slam: Mr. Robidoux

Emma Franco, Contributor

Q: How has the SBRHS experience been? One word to describe it?

A: I would say it has been welcoming but also challenging in the best way possible.

Q: What do you think about the whole “save the trees” bit, and Chromebooks?

A: Well I have been teaching without paper for 4 years, and since I am a Computer Science teacher I don’t quite use paper. So I am all for the movement.

Q: Who/What inspired you to go into the Computer Science business?

A: I don’t know if one specific person inspired me. But I took computer programming courses in high school, and I really liked the challenge of having to build things instead of to solve problems through equations.

Q: If you didn’t work here, where would you see yourself?

A: I would still be in education. My dream job would be to teach Computer Science courses and work with teachers on how to incorporate computer science into everyday teaching.

Q: What is your favorite catch-phrase? Why?

A: Probably brilliant. Because you can use the term on anyone. They don’t have to be smart, they could have just an amazing task.

Q: If you had to give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be and why?

A: If I had to give one piece of advice to my younger self, it would probably be to stay more focused on music. I am a guitar player and I wish I would have been more focused with it.

Q: Who’s your celebrity crush?

A: In music, I have two. One is Ryan Adams who does old country. And my second would have to be Ridge Robinson who is in the band Black Crows.
