    talent (#1)-long
    curiosity(#5)-short
    and did the optional
    as far as the question on your worst/best/hardest teacher, just tell a story or something. what made him/her such a bad teacher. why is it so important for teachers to communicate the info the students. if he/she is good why. at least that's what i thought.

    optional- wrote about my research (only did that because i already had one prepared)

    long- curiosity
    short- what you would do as principal
  • rfwcphs1rfwcphs1 Registered User Posts: 236 Junior Member
    haha what did you decide to do as principal? I had too many things I wanted to change and couldn't narrow down to one.

    Long-Topic of choice, about my parents doing top secret stuff for the gov and how it affected my interests etc growing up.

    Short-teacher, how my toughest was my best, and I knew I really earned it when I got this one grade on an essay [that the teacher mentioned in his rec, so hopefully that helps haha]

    Optional--about a comm. service project I headed, benefitting a school in Ghana
