Now, the moment that you have all been waiting for: the truth about Mrs. Petrarca!
Mrs. Petrarca’s favorite type of food is Italian. Her favorite part of working in the middle school is the children. Her favorite color is red. Mrs. Petrarca has been planning on moving for 5 years, and has been working at FCS for 16 years! She does not have any pets. In her free time, Mrs. Petrarca travels, goes out to dinner and spends time with her grandchildren. Her favorite vacation was to Italy, and her favorite holiday is Christmas.
Mrs. Petrarca was very surprised to see that 37% of the students thought she had a cat. In fact, she does not like cats very much, and is actually a little scared of them. Many student responses were correct, but the next thing that Mrs. Petrarca was most surprised to see was that the majority of the students thought her favorite color is gold. “I look more like a red person,” said Mrs. Petrarca. She felt very lucky to be interviewed and she is thankful that the student body took the time to answer some questions about her.
