As a student it is really easy to think of your teachers as just that, teachers. It is really easy to not think of or even realize that they are in fact real people. So, to learn that every teacher has a story, I interviewed Mr. Carman. I asked Mr. Carman questions that ranged from asking about teaching, to hobbies, and to his family.
How many years have you been teaching?
What subjects do you teach?
U.S. History and American Government
What made you want to become a teacher?
I wanted to be a baseball coach so it led to me teaching.
What is your favorite grade to teach?
Juniors are my favorite.
What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?
Chicken shawarma pita
What is your favorite thing to do outside of school?
Go golfing or watching football
What is your favorite sports to watch? To play?
Football, baseball and basketball to watch, golf to play
When you’re having a bad day, what will always make it better?
A nap- a wake up with a fresh perspective
How old are your children?

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would do with the money?
Quit teaching and contact my financial advisor
I learned much about Mr. Carman and how he is as a person rather than just seeing him as my teacher. I think that it is crazy to think about how all the people in your life and around you aren’t there to just fill up your life. They all have their own families and feelings and hobbies that they enjoy doing. If you ever have a chance to get to know the people around you a little better, especially your teachers, I strongly encourage you to do it!
