Hoofprints sat down with math teacher and junior class advisor, Mr. Spirelli, to hear his thoughts on the new school year, his reasons for becoming a math teacher, and his infamous disdain for drinking straws.

What do you think of the freshmen class this year?

So far they’ve been very nice. I like them a lot.

What are you excited for in the upcoming school year?

I guess now that I’m the junior class advisor, I’m excited for that and Junior Dinner and all that stuff. I was also excited for Spirit Week, which just ended. 

Why did you decide to become a math teacher?

I was always good in math. Math and science were always my subjects. I went to school for engineering, but then I realized after a couple years of engineering I didn’t want to do engineering. I always had the math background and a love for math, so then a couple years after I graduated… I decided to try teaching, and liked it, so naturally I went into math.

Do you ever regret being a math teacher?

No, I don’t. I’m thankful that I found it.

Finally, has your opinion on straws changed in the past year?

[Laughs] No. I still hate them. I don’t use them. And now there’s a big environmental thing, right, with straws, no straws. I’m on board, environmentally. I don’t like the sensation.
