What is your favorite Keith Valley memory?
KV is a great place to work. My favorite KV memory was when Vince Papale came to talk to the students before the Challenge.
What is the best part of teaching science?
I love seeing students get excited when we are about to do our frog dissection. Students who may seem squeamish really get into it.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I would love to travel to South Africa. I have always wanted to go on a safari and to see the Great White Sharks.

Philly Sports Teams: Eagles by Kalhleif F.
The Philadelphia eagles have been off to a good start with their new coach Doug Pederson and line up. Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, their 1st round 2nd pick, has been doing amazing with 2901 passing yards and 11 passing touchdowns. Ryan Matthews has been doing awesome with 7 rushing touchdowns and 427 yards. Jordan Matthews, the 3 year veteran, is off to a good start too, with 3 passing touchdowns and 686 yards. Unfortunately, the past few games have not been that great. Hopefully next year they will be better overall. This all the time we have. Thank you from your host, Kalhleif F.

Do you think people treat students equally?
Yes, just because you are different in some way doesn't matter.
Do you think this school needs Air Conditioning?
Yes, There are also warm water fountains that no one likes.
Do you think we need to be trusted with our phones?
Maybe, because we are in middle school, but many unsafe things can happen.
Do you think students have too much homework?
Yes, homework causes stress which can lead to depression.
