8th Grade - Rm 302

Name and Grade

Mr. Derek Glowacz • 8th Grade

Where are you From?

I was born and raised on the Northwest Side of Chicago.  

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

If I could travel anywhere in the world it would have to be Ireland. I have a great deal of family living all over the country still. It would be nice to do some sight seeing and backpacking on the trip as well.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

One book everyone must read is The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. A prequel to The Lord of The Rings trilogy, The Hobbit is a great read for the adventure minded individual.  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

My favorite teacher growing up was Mrs. McClendon, my 4th and 5th grade teacher. She was the first person to really take an interest in my abilities as an educated young child. Since my graduation Mrs. McClendon has come to my H.S. and College graduations.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

This is my first year at Goudy and I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach here. The staff has been very welcoming and I believe this will be my best year teaching yet.
