Three Questions with Allie Gerstly '08

What is your favorite GFS memory?
Senior Skits! I remember having so much fun with my classmates. It's a beloved tradition, and I know the Class of 2008 bonded in a big way as we prepared for and presented our skits.

If you could have lunch with one person alive or dead, who would it be?
I would choose my advisor from junior and senior years, Larissa Showalter. She was an incredibly important part of my GFS experience; I always admired and looked up to her!

What is your favorite thing about your career?
All teachers are students too in that there is always something to learn, whether it's about teaching practice or our subject matter. I love that I get to learn new things every day.
