An Afternoon with Mr. Munoz


Mr. Munoz


Why did you decide to go into education, and specifically the admin track?


Since I was a little kid I thought I would make an excellent teacher, I was drawn to groups of kids when I was a kid myself, and would end up teaching them reading and things like that. Eventually I developed a passion for being around kids and educating them, so I went to school for it. I wasn’t into administration at first, but someone else saw the potential I had, so I tried to give it a try.


Why the Arts Academy?


It was a blessing in disguise, I was very happy and comfortable at my former school but they decided to send me over here. I asked arts? I am not very artistic, but I came here and discovered a new world. I love the kids, the vibe, and everything they have to offer. I am learning more and more as I spend time with the kids.


Would you rather sub for the Seniors or the Freshman?


I don’t know the seniors very well, but the Freshman, I’ve been with them since orientation, they are a great group of kids, and I have already established relationships with them. But the Seniors, I don’t know very well so that is why the Freshman would be easy for me.

About the Contributor
Adela Furman, Co-Editor In Chief
Hi, I'm Adela! I am current Junior at GHAA, the stage manager for Looking in Theater, and a veteran member of Student Voices. It has been (jokingly) said on occasion that I am the sole reason the building is running. My friends know me best as Dells, and when I am not writing or running the building, you can find me curled up in a corner somewhere reading or crocheting. My favorite kinds of pieces to write are op-eds. I always have something to say, especially if it's about a topic I am passionate about. I started Oh My GHAA! in an attempt to help with the feeling of lacking communication within the building. It is something I struggled with myself, so I was more than over-joyed when The GHAASIP was published last year. Due to the class that was producing it being a half-year course, it was unfortunately discontinued. My dream for this paper it that it will be different. A more developed version of The GHAASIP. Something that will last and be handed down from class to class.
