Today, I interviewed Mrs. Frey, a Shorecrest alum who recently moved from teaching 8th-grade Algebra I to teaching Honors Pre-Calc and Algebra II in the Upper School. (She is also an amazing advisor!)
Describe a random act of kindness that you have witnessed in the Shorecrest community.
What I love about a school like Shorecrest is how we come together as a community when someone is struggling. Whether it’s a big event or an injury, I’ve seen lots of people going out of their way to support each other.
What is the biggest life lesson this past year has taught you?
Moving to high school and teaching the same people that I taught in middle school has shown me how much people can change and grow in a short period of time.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
Teleportation, because I would love to travel more. To be able to instantly transport to China, spend two days there, and come back would be pretty amazing.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone that is struggling academically, what would it be?
Although struggle is demoralizing, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes struggle can help us improve, so don’t get frustrated. Just keep working hard and push through.
If you had the opportunity to say anything to the president, what would it be?
I think it’s important for all presidents to realize that they are not only a political leader, but a role model. I would tell him that all role models should make sure they are being someone that today’s youth can look up to.
