A couple of questions for Ms. Shariff...
Q: What’s your favorite color? A: Without a doubt, it’s purple!
Q: What do you like to do for fun? A: I love to read, cook, bake, go watch a soccer match, create something interesting, explore new places, visit bookstores and museums, meet interesting authors, and spend time with my family and friends.
Q: What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten? A: Romanesco broccoli: it’s a perfectly cool fractal combination of math and nature, all in a delicious cauliflower-y bite!
Q: Do you have a favorite book or author? A: It’s hard to say just one, but I love the Harry Potter series. I also love some Twin Cities authors: Kate DiCamillo and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Guess which of those two authors I have met?!
Q: Do you have any collections? A: Yes! I collect interesting rocks and minerals and autographed books. I have over 100 autographed books, mostly from when I worked in a bookstore in Chicago.
Q: Wait, did you live in Chicago? A: I was born and grew up in Chicago, and moved to Saint Paul awhile back. I love it here, even when winter bites at you!
PS, Parents: You can typically reach me after school via phone, or preferably through email. ***If you have an urgent, time-sensitive message, please call the main office (not the classroom), and a message will be delivered promptly. I will do my very best to reply to correspondence within 24 hours.
