Mostly A’s: Mr. Parks
You take after Mr. Parks! You’re a total history buff; you know everything about all 50 states and even Puerto Rico. You’re witty, so you use your jokes on your beloved students. You seem a bit serious, but you aren’t afraid to laugh every once in a while.
Mostly B’s: Ms. Bills-Tenney
You’re most like Ms. Bills. You’re creative, quirky, and ready to rumble–in an intellectual debate that is! You’re opinionated, open-minded, and optimistic. You strongly prefer puppies to people.
Mostly C’s: Mr. Breese
You’re Mr. Breese’s doppelgänger. You’re not just a pretty face; you’re super smart but you do have a tendency to slack a bit. You were definitely born in the wrong decade; you hate nearly all forms of technology!
Mostly D’s: Mr. Reinhart
Whoosh! There you go again, always on the run, just like Mr. Reinhart. You’re definitely a man on the go, but you still make time for friends and family Sarcasm is your weapon of choice and you’re not afraid to use it.
Mostly E’s: Mr. Erwin
You’re dark and mysterious just like Mr. Erwin. No one knows anything about you, but they want to! You come off as intimidating and critical, but you’re really just a big teddy bear trying your best.
