Have you ever seen Vogue’s 73 Questions? If not, go and check it out, after you’ve read this post about TheIdealTeacher, obviously!
I enjoy watching Vogue’s 73 questions pitched to celebrities, which allows the general public to take a peek into the homes and lives of many talented people in the public eye. Although I strongly believe that celebs are just normal people, it’s still interesting to hear them answer personal questions that gives an further insight into them as human beings.
In this same vein and since I haven’t really shared too much about myself over the last one and a half years since creating this website, I’ve decided to pinch the concept and share a little bit more about me with my readers.
I’ve got 73 random questions, which I’ve tried to answer in a succinct manner, much like in Vogue’s 73 questions videos.
I hope it gives you a little insight into my life inside and outside of teaching! Read on for more information about The Ideal Teacher!
