Rock Canyon gained many new teachers this year and we are taking the time to get to know them. We asked a few simple and abstract questions to help you get to know the staff who is dedicated to helping you learn. This weeks Feature Teacher is math teacher Grace Nishida.


What subject(s) do you teach and why did you decide that subject?

“I am a math teacher I have two geometry classes, two honors trig/pre calc classes and one discreet math.”


What is your favorite part of being a teacher? 

“I love being a teacher. I haven’t been teaching for super long but I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. I actually wanted to teach fifth grade for a very long time about until my freshman year of college then I decided that I wanted to teach high schoolers.”


Favorite memory from teaching?

“I think everyday I have just a lot of goofy kids who make me laugh and that’s just the best part. I can’t pinpoint one specific favorite  memory at the moment.” 


If you could have one super power what would you choose? 

“I would want to teleport places because I hate driving, flying, I just don’t like traveling but I like the destinations. So if I could just teleport myself there, that would be great,”


What is your biggest pet peeve? 

“My biggest pet peeve in life is when the toilet paper roll is left empty. I don’t know why it bothers me so much, but it seems like such an easy task to replace it and when people don’t do it, it drives me crazy.”
