The most fustrating thing for me would have to be...... once while our our group was meeting and no one could login because it said you are already signed in as Lucy U.-(me) so that made me fustrated. The way I overcame the fustration is by having patience.

The contents of this interview published by Lucy and Leslie are solely the responsibility of the weblog authors for the posting on simulated interviews with our teachers. Statements made and opinions expressed in these interviews are based on what we believe would be the responses of our teachers. This activity was developed to help us develop good questions for interviews and then write the interview in a form that would be clear, concise, and interesting for our teacher and others to read. We, of course, are trusting that our teacher will enjoy this activity as much as we have. We really hope our teacher will agree that our answers could be her answers and will be amazed at how well we have come to know her! We would like to dedicate this post to Mrs.Mateling and say thank you for a wonderful year.
