Teacher Feature: Mrs. Kohl

By Christopher Wootton

This year, Bay Farm has had a host of new teachers, from new principal Mrs. Crawford to the new P.E. teacher, Mrs. Rabel. But this teacher feature is about a teacher who wasn’t even teaching at the beginning of the year. Mrs. Kohl came to Bay Farm as a long term substitute, but has taken the job of being our new science teacher. Because of how new she is, we took this opportunity to learn a few things about her.

Q: What is your favorite part of teaching?

A: My favorite part of teaching is seeing that a struggling student finally gets a concept and you can see them go “Ohh.”

Q: And your least favorite part of teaching?

A: Grading.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Bay Farm?

A: I love the diversity.

Q: How long have you been teaching?

A: I was teaching for 19 years and then I retired. That means this is my 20th year.

Q: Why did you choose to teach science in particular?

A: For one, I love science, and I also think scientific knowledge is important to have right now.

Q: What is your favorite pizza topping?

A: I only eat one kind of pizza: pepperoni.

Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

A: I’ve always wanted to fly.

Mrs. Kohl is an amazing science teacher and she tries to make each lesson interesting with lab experiments and demonstrations. She really makes an effort to make science fun.
