Today is Nov. 11th. My name is Alana Sterling, and I interviewed Ms. Brusnahan.

I wanted to interview her because I like her class and her as a teacher.

The first question I asked was, “What made you become a psychology teacher?” Her answer was that it wasn’t her choice, but she does enjoy teaching it.

The funniest thing that has happened to her is either the students telling their odd personal stories, or a student asking her if she was mixed race.

Since psychology wasn’t her teaching choice, and social studies was, her reason for choosing it is because it was “interesting.”

The next question I asked was, “What is your ideal vacation?” Her answer was to stay in a log cabin in the mountains while it’s snowing out.

My final question was, “What do you want your students to take out of your classes?” Her answer was unexpected. She told me it was for her to make students realize that learning isn’t boring or a chore.

What I learned from this is that Ms. Brusnahan has an interesting life, and goals, and I think she is doing really well as a teacher. I’ll probably remember her when I’m old. Thank you Ms. Brusnahan!
