Ms.Z: I teach science, right now ninth grade, eleventh grade, and twelfth grade.
JBP: Which types of science?
Ms.Z: Biology, well I’ve taught almost everything here; biology, chemistry, physics, nutrition.
JBP: What would you say your favorite field of science is?
Ms.Z: My favorite thing to teach right now is psychology.
JBP: Is there a reason why?
Ms.Z: It’s just really fun, and students are very enthusiastic about learning it, so I never have to worry about motivation.
JBP: What were you like in high school?
Ms.Z: In high school, I was a very good student, top student, graduated with a 4.0, and almost perfect grades. I was one of those.
JBP: Did you do anything else in high school?
Ms.Z: Yeah. I did theater, I did music, I was in the band, and the chorus. We had a chorus that was just like the one in Glee.
JBP: Oh, that’s so cool. What instrument did you play?
Ms.Z: I played flute, piano, violin, and viola.
JBP: Is there a type of music genre that you like?
Ms.Z: I like a lot of things; I like pretty much everything, but primarily in show choir we sang show tunes, and orchestra, we played primarily orchestral music, classical music. I was also in the musicals, High School Musical.
JBP: So just like the students here?
Ms.Z: Yeah, just like them.
JBP: Thank you Ms. Zack.
