Our next guest in today’s section is John Rider, a Design teacher who “found the way to a student’s heart” for the 2020-2021 academic year.
What are your thoughts on waking up in the morning?
– Honestly, my first thoughts in the morning are, “Is there coffee?”
A better answer might be, “What can I do to make someone’s life a little brighter today?”.
Have you ever been left feeling inspired?
– This will sound very glib, but my students inspire me every day. Sometimes it’s a small inspiration – that’s a good idea – other times they inspire me to be creative in all sorts of ways.
Your wishes for the graduating class of 2021
– My wishes for the graduating class are for them to find their true path in life; to find joy in what they have; and to accept who they are – delightful, crazy, creative individuals.
