Name and Grade

Learning Specialist: Ms. Magiera

Where are you From?

I think of myself as being from many places... I moved around a lot as a child (my dad was in the Army) but I was born in Hawaii. I spent the last 10 years living in New York City and am happy to now call Chicago my home!

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

I would love to visit Australia. They are known to have amazing beaches, beautiful scuba diving, lush jungles, and excellent culture.

What is one book that everyone must read?

I think everybody over the age of 10 should read the book Wonder. It's a beautifully written book with a fantastic message about acceptance and kindness.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

I loved my high school physics teacher, Mr. Irelan. He was so enthusiastic about what he was teaching that you couldn't help but want to learn. He also let us build our own robots as a class project which gave me a sense of accomplishment that I still remember to this day.

What do you like most about Goudy?

I love how welcoming Goudy is as a community. Everyone from everywhere belongs here and the teachers and students really make you feel that way!
