What's your favorite thing about one of your grandparents?

My grandmother, Rubilee Weihl, was a wonderful cook. When it was time to eat, she would ring a chime in her hallway near the dining room. I loved her baked eggplant, sautéed onions, and steak meal the most. She probably used lots of butter!
 

Would you rather be a giant hamster or a tiny rhino?

Tiny rhino - I'd be small but mighty!
 

What do you love about Forsyth?

I love that my classroom is in the cozy attic of Gerdine House, which overlooks the playground. I love that Forsyth students walk to Wash U and Forest Park for amazing field trips. I love that our community embraces sustainability and doing important deeds to help our planet. And, I love that I can see colleagues, students, and former Forsyth families in the grocery store or anywhere around St. Louis and pleasantly chat with them for 15 minutes - special people are associated with Forsyth School.

What is your dream vacation? 

The northeast of Canada. In fact, I am planning a trip to go there soon.

If you had to pick one restaurant in which to eat dinner for a year, what would it be? 

Pad Thai-in fact I ate there twice last week.

What do you love about Forsyth? 

The community. First and foremost the children.

What inspires you?

People inspire me! They include: my family, fiancé, friends, the students at Forsyth, and my Pre-K team.

Who do you know that really reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie?

My dog reminds me of Garfield because he loves to eat, is super lazy, and has an attitude! 

What do you love about Forsyth?

Forsyth is such a great school! I love the homey feeling you get when you walk onto campus, the students and families, and my Pre-K team, of course.

How do you show your school spirit?

Well, not sure anybody know this, but instead of saying a prayer every night, I recite the School Honor Code!
 

Who is your favorite band?

No one favorite, but these oldies but goodies make my list:  Bad Company, Foghat, AC/DC, and then slow it down with a little Al Green!
 

What do you love about Forsyth?

So much to love all of these years at Forsyth School...... I've seen a lot during my time here, but one thing hasn't changed:  Forsyth is school heaven!!!!

Judy Taylor | Grade 1 East

What's the best/worst thing about being a teacher?

The best thing about being a teacher is watching my students’ eyes light up when they learn something new or tackle something difficult. Empowering my students to learn and grow is my greatest joy. The worst thing about being a teacher is the good byes at the end of the year. In my mind I know our students are just moving down the hall, but in my heart it’s a big deal!
 

What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed?

I have no doubt that the unicorn would greatly improve our world. I became convinced of this last year, when several determined first graders dipped their toes into public policy and circulated a petition to transform Freddy Falcon into a “unifalcon”. We could use more unicorn believers right about now. 
 

What do you love about Forsyth?

See above. ;-)
