Teacher Feature: Mrs. Armstrong
- What is your favorite Winter Olympic sport?
- My favorite Olympic sport is figure skating. I love the movement and choreography, and the music choices that each soloist or duo perform.
- What is the biggest risk you have ever taken?
- I’m pretty much living my risk right now! I’m a huge planner and my boyfriend and I had planned our future (or at least I did). We wanted to buy a house after we finished paying our student loans, think about having children in our 30s, get my masters in a couple of years, etc. However, back in October we found out that I’m pregnant. At the time we were living in a small two bedroom house with our lab, Blue. This really changed our plans. I have endometriosis, had a heart ablation done in June for my SVT, and my freshman year of college was hit by a car. Having children was something that we didn’t think would happen for us. It is such a huge blessing and we are excited, but we had to move quickly. We bought a house and my mother-in-law moved in with us so that she can watch the baby while we are at work next year. Of course with all of these sudden life changes we have to take risks.
- What is one concept you cannot understand, no matter how hard you try?
- Math! It wasn’t until my sophomore year of high school that I started understanding basic algebra, but even then it is the biggest subject I still struggle with.
- What is one item on your bucket list?
- One item on my bucket list is working on my Master’s. I’m still deciding between Administration or another music degree.
- Bonus: If you were in the witness protection program, what would be your new name and where would you go?
- If I was in the witness protection program, I don’t know what my name would be, but hopefully I can go somewhere peaceful and carefree to hide out! I always wanted a little farm so maybe that can be my new life.
