Students and faculty know Ms.Dewey as a Spanish and Health teacher but there is so much more to her. She comes to North Scott High School every day to teach students with a smile on her face even better, she comes and makes learning Spanish and Health fun. I chose to do an interview with Ms. Dewey because of how happy she always seems and how fun she is. When in her Spanish class, I was able to learn a lot because of how interesting she made it and how enjoyable it was when she would teach us by acting things out and playing games. Also in her class, she was understanding when someone was unable to participate because of a legitimate reason. I like her class a lot and it was really cool having her class from the first day of school till the end of the semester.
