Teacher Feature: Mr. Painter
What is the weirdest hobby you’ve tried?
Bungee jumping. When I was in my 20’s I did it to overcome my fear of heights and found it exhilarating. I ended up bungee jumping several times.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Moose Tracks (or anything with a combination of fudge, peanut butter, nuts, or caramel)
What is something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t tried yet?
SkyDiving. It would be the other ultimate challenge to overcome the fear of heights. My wife said I couldn’t do it until our kids were grown up, so I guess it’s about time for me to do it!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Probably still teaching in Delphi unless I decide to retire from teaching early and do something else. Otherwise I’ll probably teach seven more years. I also hope to have a grandchild to spoil by then.
Do you collect anything?
Not anymore. I used to collect football cards and other sports memorabilia.
Bonus Question: If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Probably Jesus. He would have all the answers to every question about life.
