Mrs. Snow – Special Education
What are some of your hobbies?
I am a reader! I belong to a book club. My biggest hobby is my family–especially my grandkids.
What were your childhood dreams?
I wanted to be a guest on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. I wanted to make some significant archaeological find. I wanted to be a respected writer and actress. I also, at one time, wanted to be an Indian Princess.
Do you have any heroes? What qualities do they have that make them a hero?
I do have heroes. They are generally people who have met trials with dignity and integrity. They are contributors and survivors. In history people like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington because they rose to the occasion and served our country. People who exemplify the triumph of the human spirit–like Anne Frank and so many others who endured atrocities in times of war and yet were able to forgive and go on to lead productive lives.
If you could have a second profession what would it be? Why?
I would be a writer, an actress, or create a job in which I got paid to read books to groups of children.
If you could be a character from any book, who would you be? Why?
There is a part of me that wanted to be a pioneer. I remember reading a book a long time ago called “With a Lantern in Her Hand.” I don’t remember the characters name, but she ends up marrying and moving with her husband to settle somewhere in Nebraska. Or maybe Pippi Longstockings. I liked how unconventional her life was. If I thought about this longer, I’m sure I could keep changing my answer. I really like the character Scout from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” but I’m not sure I would want to be her…
