Still Ms Vázquez? Wow. Are we still talking to her? I wish I'd had time to do a proper interview here, there are many followup questions I'd love to ask. How many times have you been to Christmas markets already this year? How many more times do you plan to go? I have been to the Christmas markets 5 times already, I went to the Christmas market in Olomouc and I usually go to the one at Masaryk square every weekend. It is very cozy, there is always some performance there and nice typical food. I am not sure how many more times I will go, but I know I will go again. What's the color of your favorite month? // What are your thoughts on snow? The color of my favorite month is white. I am not used to snow, we don´t have snow in Valencia, where I come from. Therefore, I really enjoy seeing everything with snow, all white. It was an awesome view when I first saw snow in Poland. I am hoping for a white Christmas this year during my first Christmas in the Czech Republic. What's your favorite Christmas tradition? My favorite Christmas tradition is a typical Spanish one. We call it “the 12 grapes”. On the 31st of December at 00:00, the clock from “la Puerta del sol” in Madrid strikes 12 times. For each time it strikes you need to eat a grape (The clock goes quite fast). Tradition says if you manage to eat all 12, you will have an amazing year. Who's your favorite fictional teacher, or fictional teacher you find most inspiring? I have to say I am a huge Harry Potter fan and consequently, my favorite fictional teacher has to be from those movies. In my case, Professor Minerva McGonagall really inspires me. She looks strict and can sometimes seem “scary”, however, she is always there when needed and even though she points out what the student has done wrong and takes negative actions (i.e. punishment), she also sees the positive actions and rewards her students. There is a balance. Why did you want to become a teacher? What does teaching mean to you? I have always wanted to make a difference. I think teachers are very important in a child's life and they are part of the process for the success of a person. I wanted to be part of this and help students achieve their goals. I enjoy being with students, helping them and solving their doubts. It is very rewarding to see the development of a student and see that their knowledge is increasing.
