Today’s guest blogger is Daquayveon Edmonson, a fourth grader at Woodward School for Science and Technology. His favorite thing to learn about in school is science. His favorite book is the one he currently has checked out from the Woodward library: Tucker’s Countryside. Daquayveon interviewed his Principal, Mr. Frank Rocco for today’s blog post.

What is something interesting you’ve recently learned?
I watched the show Cosmos last night and it was amazing to learn about the many, many solar systems and other planets that are being discovered.
What are you currently reading?
I’m reading four different books right now. The one I’m spending the most time with is a math book. It focuses on ten different ways to help teachers learn how to best teach math to each of their students.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A professional baseball player.
What is your favorite word right now?
Will you share with us something that has been on your mind lately?
I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how I can get Woodward to be the best school in Kalamazoo. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I can bring in to the school to help everyone—the teachers, the students, so everyone can do the best job they can.
Behind every successful student–and grownup–is a caring adult. Who is one of your caring adults?
My grandmother is someone I talk with regularly. She helped to raise me, and is someone who I’m still pretty close with. She keeps me going.
