Claire Mrozek, Upper School History Teacher and Junior Class Dean
What motivated and inspired you to teach?
I had some amazing teachers growing up who pushed me and helped me understand things about myself I would not have understood otherwise.
What makes you excited to come to school every day?
Every day is different; I never know where kids are going to take the material. Plus, most of them say "Thank you" on the way out the door.
What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom?
Working hard is never a bad idea.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself!
I love pop culture. I love trying to figure out what the latest TV show, song, or internet meme says about what Americans care about in that moment.
What is your favorite book and why?
I couldn't pick one. Every book I've ever read has given me something.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Teddy Roosevelt. What a crazy conversation that would be! I just think they all have very different Americas that I would like to understand better.
