Ms. Infusino now teaches middle school students

Students interview Hermosa Valley teacher, Ms. Infusino

Interview with Ms. Infusino

By: Jack Drinker and Kyra Dates

 

            We interviewed Ms. Infusino about being a newcomer when it comes to teaching in a Hermosa Beach middle school. She said after teaching in elementary for nine years, the biggest difference was having way more students. “It’s harder for me to get to know every kid, their struggles, and the topics they excel in.” We asked her what she thought when she was starting as a middle school social studies teacher, after basically never teaching it. Her response was, “At first I was very nervous, but I was pleasantly surprised to find I love teaching social studies.”

We asked her the difference between the eighth graders and sixth graders she teaches, and she said that she expects more from the older kids. She also said that the eighth graders aren’t interested in most things that the sixth graders are.

            She said it’s easier to not get too frustrated with a student if she only has them for and hour. “You had a bad day, well move along with your day!”

            Overall we found Ms. Infusino to be fun and a person who loves teaching no matter what the subject.
