 If you can go back in time, what would you do differently in high school?

Senor Scalici: I would be a better student and get better grades, because I coasted through the material.   Also, I regret the way I behaved in high school.

What was your favorite part of high school?

Senor Scalici: Sports; I played football, wrestled, and ran track.  Sports allowed me to be supported by friends.

If you were able to, would you go to an IB school?

Senor Scalici: Now, yes.  At the time, no because I wasn’t into working hard and putting in effort into school.

Did you teach at a home school, and if so, how was your experience?
