Adrian Demian: Instrumental Music Teacher
What motivated and inspired you to teach? A few of my teachers growing up were mean and unskilled. I decided then that I would be a teacher in order to give positive school experiences to as many children as I can.
What makes you excited to come to school every day? I am excited to meet with my students; to teach them and to learn from them as well.
What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? I want my students to be self-sufficient, to be able to self assess, to be confident, and proud of their hard work.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! I was born and grew up in Transylvania (remember Dracula?), which is a beautiful region in my native Romania. It is a region full of old traditions, wonderful people, and very tasty food!
What is your favorite book and why? The Idiot by Dostoyevsky, because I am an incorrigible romantic and dreamer.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be? Mozart, because he wrote the music that penetrates closest to my heart; King Louis XIV, the Sun King, because he was both one of the greatest dancers of his generation and one of the greatest rulers; J.K. Rowling, so we can talk about Harry Potter
