What is your life motto?
Our family motto is “curiosity, enthusiasm, respect.” I guess that would be my educational motto as well.

If you could have every student at TCS read one book, what would it be and why?
George Orwell’s 1984. As a history teacher I find its discussion of how the past can be controlled and used for different purposes very intriguing.

What is the one thing that you have done in your life that even surprises you?
Bungee jumping, since I'm quite afraid of heights.
