I don't have a favorite subject; this is probably one of the reasons why I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. I really enjoy reading young adult fiction, poetry, and literature from the 1840s-1910s. I also enjoy American and Russian 20th century classics. My favorite books include the Harry Potter series, The Count of Monte Cristo, Doctor Zhivago, and Les Misérables. I enjoy listening to a variety of music including dubstep, traditional Indian sitar music, the baroque period and jazz music. I performed in a jazz band for six years as a drummer; I plan to incorporate my passion for music into my classroom. One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to watch Epic Rap Battles of History.
