Q: What would you change about our country's public school system?
A: A bigger budget, so there would be no need to stop or cut programs from schools. 

Q: Why do you want to become a teacher?
A: Coming from a long line of teachers and wanting to continue the tradition, I'd be the first male teacher in my family. Also, as a teacher I want to impact students' lives the way teachers impacted mine. 

Q: What is one thing that you wish teachers today knew?
A: Not all students have the time at home to do several packets of homework every week. There are students who must go home and be the guardian. 

Q: When I'm a teacher I will...
A: be the best I can be, and do my best to teach every kind of learning style. I would also allow my students to speak about any trouble they have in the class and would attempt to cover it in the next lesson.
