Unlike what many students believe, teachers have lives after they clock out of their daily teaching routines. From sports to music teachers have different hobbies that fill their days between grading papers and attending meetings. Take Mr. Colsch for example, in his downtime he enjoys fixing things such as cars and small appliances.

“I also do laundry on Saturdays,” adds Colsch.

Even our newest faculty member, Timothy Michel, has been making music in his free time since 2003. Michel likes to make “all kinds of music.” He also shared he has done several gigs and has even gotten paid for his music.

Michel says the hardest part of his hobby is “finding time to do it.”

Even Ms. Alvarado struggles to find the time to play in her church softball team. On weekends Alvarado pitches on her women’s softball team and has played many of the positions except for shortstop.

“Recently I even made a home run,” Alvarado remarks with pride.

Some teachers have been doing their hobbies for years. Mr Nwihim for example has been cooking since he was about 13 years old. He began cooking for his younger siblings and over time has turned it into something he enjoys.

“You’ll find me at peace when I am cooking or baking.” says Nwihim. He also adds “the hardest part of cooking it catering to everybody’s taste.”

Being a teacher doesn’t mean all work, there is still time to play. Wether its as elaborate as making music or doing laundry on Saturdays teachers have a life too.
