Q. What was your favorite part about your old schools? Least favorite?

Q. What are your responsibilities as an assistant principal?
A. I am in charge of the building, so when anything happens with the building, it comes to me. I’m also in charge of transportation.

Q. What is the order of MLA heading?
A. Oh, I have no idea. Come on, you’re going to really mess me up with this, trying to make me look bad. That wasn’t around when I was in high school.
