What is your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobbies are playing and watching basketball and going to the beach.

I would want the power to fly because I could go anywhere I wanted and I could go somewhere where there was warm weather.

What is something most people don’t know about you?
I don’t really have any secret talents but an interesting fact is that my brother lives in Hawaii and I love Hawaii. It is my favorite place and I have been there 5 times.

Yes I always wanted to be a teacher!

Do you like teaching?
Yes I love teaching, Especially at Banaadir!

MeetTeachersMarch2013Ms. Patterson

Interviewed by Ms. Patterson’s Power Hour group.
Bukhari, Maryan, Hafso, Said, Mohamed, Abdulrahman, Hamdi, Redwan, Ayub, Misky, Azhar, Abdi thought of some great questions to ask Ms. Patterson.

What is your favorite color?
Turquoise polka-dot with a burnt orange background is my favorite color.

If you had a super power, what would it be?
The power of invisibility would be my choice of super powers, but lately I’ve been thinking that I would like even better the chance to actually become Batman. So I guess my favorite and my best super power choice would be morphing into Invisible Batman.

Where do you live?
I live in north Minneapolis.

What is your dream house like?
My dream house is a tree house overlooking the ocean, most definitely, absolutely, and without question.

What are your hobbies?
I like to make quilts, investigate in the woods, experiment with foreign foods, and search the neighborhood for trampolines to jump on. Just kidding. My nieces have a trampoline that I can use whenever I choose.

How long have you been at Banaadir?
This is my sixth year at Banaadir.

Who is your favorite student?
I care about all my students—truth. I might like them for different reasons… I might think one is the funniest, another is the kindest, another is the best critical thinker, and another is outstandingly creative, but there is genuinely something I like about each of my students, and therefore they are each my favorite in some aspect.
