Most inspiring teacher: Mr. Nosbisch, my civics & economics and AP U.S. history teacher. He always finds a way to connect with each student and helps his students strive to reach goals they may have thought were unattainable.
Which super power would you like: Mimicry – the ability to copy or absorb another’s powers or skills. This would allow me to be anything I can imagine.
