“I really love the kids. It’s a great bunch of kids, and they are quite motivated.”

What excites you about teaching in Clark County?
I really love the kids. It’s a great bunch of kids, and they are quite motivated. It’s great to be with bright kids who ask challenging questions.

What is it like to live in Clark County? 
I love it. Coming from the east, the weather is such a pleasure and you don’t have to worry about snow and ice and wearing big coats. The weather in October and November and repeated in March/April is as nice as you can get anywhere. I bought a nice house, with a pool and spa, which is unheard of back in New York. Everything is new.
