Casteneda loves Eastern European culture, travel

By Chase Manson ’16

Mr. Mazzolini’s question from last edition: Would you rather have a prehensile tale or insect wings?

I would want the insect wings, I have never heard of the tale thing. I do love butterflies.

How long have you been at Brophy? 

Since 2005, that’s eight years I do believe.

I hear you used to teach English. Since you no longer teach it what do you have against literature?    

I don’t have anything against literature. I love reading. I am actually working on my Masters in English just for fun. I just love reading good books.

Well what’s your favorite book?

“Great Expectations.” I really like it for some reason. I think it is really good.

What do you love most about teaching math? 

In math there is right or wrong answer, which makes it easier to grade. Math is more objective than English, which makes it fun and a little easier. I also really like problem solving.

Where are you originally from? 

I am from Michigan

So does this make you a University of Michigan fan? 

Well, I am a University of Michigan fan. However, I didn’t go there. I went to University of Leftbrige, which no one has heard of.

What are you doing for the holidays?

I am going to my sister’s house. I will chat with her and her husband. We will probably play games and watch goofy movies.

What is your favorite goofy movie?

No comment.

Are you a Christmas or a Thanksgiving person? 

I am more a of Christmas person. I really like to buy people the gifts they should have. As horrible as it sounds it’s quite true.

What is the best gift you have ever given? 

Well, I wouldn’t say it is the best but it is a pretty good one. My niece races cars so I gave her a race car clock. It had red light, green light and yellow lights. It was pretty cool.

Do you travel a lot? 

Well I have traveled a lot in the past few years. I think that makes me a world traveler.

What’s your favorite place you have been so far? 

I loved Russia. I really love the Eastern European culture. It’s so eclectic.

Would you like to propose a question for the next teacher edition of Teacher’s Pets?    

Yes. When I went to Poland I looked at a lot of apartments. So my question is why do they call apartments, “apartments” when they are connected buildings?
