|A favorite project, with a fun story, The Wisp of Firmament|
- Tell us a little about yourself outside the cup.
2. Why did you choose to be Head of House?
I loved being a Prefect and cheerleading for Ravenclaw. It became a bigger and bigger part of my life until when CMelvin was ready to retire I couldn’t imagine not stepping up.
3. What’s the most challenging part of running a House?
The growth we experience every term. I constantly need to adapt how I do things so that the same great things can be done for an ever expanding number of students. When we hit 150 per House last term my head exploded.
I have a great House Staff though. They really make things work.
4. Favorite and least favorite part of being HoH:
My very favorite thing is letting people take their own ideas and run with them. Many of the very best things we do in Ravenclaw started with an idea someone had in passing. It is so great to be able to be the person that says, ”I think you should do it.” and “How can I help you make that happen.”
Ravenclaw Tower is a dream we dream together. It takes a lot of ideas to build something like that. I’m really blessed to be its guardian.
I feel guilty admitting my least favorite part. Honestly? It is that I automatically disqualify myself from House contests. This is a right and good thing but I find contests and drawings so enticing. I love the thrill of the possibility of winning more than winning itself.
I had such fun with the Ravenclaw Summer Reading Programme because I was able to compete full out. That was a treat for me.
5. If you could have one (spell, potion, charm whatever) that would work in real life what would it be?
A Time Turner no doubt about it. I’m currently in a state of having way to many things needing my time. If I could just manage a few extra hours in the day I might get a chance to catch some sleep.
That's it for me this week. Thanks for letting me pick your brain, Isis!
