AfterSchool & Summer Program

At McGillis since 2018


What do you think makes McGillis different?

McGillis has such a warm, welcoming environment and feels like a home away from home. 


Are you learning or teaching yourself something new lately?

My new year's resolution has been to read more this year, so I'm hoping to learn new things from the books I read.


Which McGillis value do you most appreciate?

I appreciate Tikkun Olam.


What are you currently reading?

I just recently finished Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time, I highly recommend it.


What is your superpower? Why?

I think that I'm an extremely empathetic person and that helps me connect with people on a deeper level. 


If you could eat dinner with someone famous, living or dead, who would it be?

Stanley Kubrick is one of my favorite directors. I'd love to sit down and hear him talk about his work.


What is your favorite AfterSchool tradition? 

You can't go wrong with fruit roll-up Friday!
