Today, for our Friends Friday, we are spotlighting Mrs. Kandice Antonino. Mrs. Antonino is our facilitator her at Brookside which means that she teaches the teachers. But, she does more than that. She helps kids, teaches lessons, listens, gives advice, helps wherever it’s needed and more. Mrs. Antonino works as our mentor to our new teachers, but really, to everyone here. We love having Mrs. Antonino here at Brookside!
On the weekend, Mrs. Antonino loves to watch her kids at their sporting events. She also likes to go to lunch/dinner with family and friends.
If you could have lunch with any fictional character, who would it be? Dumbledore
Who was your favorite teacher and why? Mrs. Peery - She was older and grandma-like, very loving, caring, and firm. We would sit around her piano and sing songs and I always won playing multiplication around the world!
If you were given a $1000 - what would you buy? Airline tickets to someplace warm and fun!
What song would you sing at Karaoke night? NONE!
Who or what inspires you? My kids - they work so hard, face challenges, try new things, build up their teams, fail, succeed, have fun, love others and repeat these actions daily.
Share a memory of school: We created a newscast and I got to be the weatherman and I LOVED it! I remember creating the posters for it, dressing up and even recording ourselves!
What is your favorite thing to teach every year? You can do hard things!
What is the best thing about your job? I get to work with everyone in the school! The teachers, techs, lunch ladies, office staff, students, parents, EVERYONE! and 99% of the time it is a happy, fun, positive way!
