Teacher Talk: October 2014

Editor’s Note:  This is the first month for a new feature called “Teacher Talk” which The Patterson Press will do every month. We will ask teachers a question that is related to the current month. Check back next month for the next Teacher Talk.

By Xavier Williams,

In this month of October something scary and fun happens: Halloween. So I decided to ask teachers a question that connects with that theme. My question was “What is your biggest fear and why?”. Here are some of the responses I got:

“My biggest fear is drowning because I am an awesome swimmer and it would frighten me if I couldn’t breathe.”

-Ms.Shank, Biology teacher


“Currently my biggest fear is leaving this earth before my sons are in a position to care for them selves.” 

-Mr.Antoine, Special Education


“One of my biggest fears is to lose somebody close to me and not have the chance to see him/her before going to heaven. This is especially true for people like me, immigrants, who leave away from everything they know.”

-Ms.Varela, Engineering Teacher

Next month’s question will be: “What are you most thankful for?”
