If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be and why?

What inspires you in life?

Tell us about a teacher you had who meant a lot to you.
“My 7th-grade social studies teacher, Mr. Rosaschi, was the most amazing teacher and person. He was an avid traveler and brought his experiences to the classroom. He taught us about the importance of knowing world geography and understanding and respecting all cultures. His two mottos were, ‘be observant’ and ‘have empathy.’ I try and live by those words every day.”

What is your favorite book?
“That's a hard one to answer. My favorites vary depending on my mood. Some days it's a philosophical book. Other days it's a romance novel.”

What would you tell a family who is considering Bosque School?
“I would tell them that enrolling at Bosque School is the best decision they could make for their child. Not only will they succeed academically, but they will learn how to succeed in life.”
