5th Grade - Rm 310

Name and Grade

Mr. Ryan Eggert • 5th Grade

Where are you From?

Indianapolis, Indiana 

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

 I would love to travel to Germany as I am part German but would also like to experience some of the actual places where World War 2 was fought.  I enjoy reading and learning about the experiences soldiers and everyday people had during that time period.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime.  Fascinating book told from the point of view of child with 'behavioral problems' who investigates the crime of a dead dog in the neighborhood.  I love it because it provides another point of view to analyze the world from.  Sometimes I think we as humans don't always do the best job of putting ourselves in other peoples shoes or take into consideration other people's life experiences.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

My literacy teacher my freshman year of high school Doc Land was my favorite teacher.  He knew how to take reading and make it enjoyable and engaging and was the first teacher to really foster my love for reading.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

 I really enjoy the diversity of the students and staff and the family atmosphere that is present on a daily basis.  You can tell as soon as you walk in that everyone in the building enjoys being here and truly is passionate about cultivating life long learners!
