If from Albert Lea, which elementary school did you attend? Sibley

Favorite teacher of all time and why: There’s so many amazing teachers, but one of my favorite was Peggy Bennett in first grade. She did a lot of fun things for our class and always pushed us to be our best.

Favorite book/author: “Peak” series by Roland Smith

Current/past activities, volunteer work and accomplishments: Too many to list so these are my favorites. I am basically in every band activity from jazz band to marching band and everything in between, robotics, fall musical, NHS. Outside of school, I’m a manager at McDonald’s.
