Justin Block:

What is it like having your mom at the same school as you?

“It’s fun. It’s neat because I get to use my mom’s office.”

Tracy Block:

What is it like having your son at the same school as you?

“Its nice because I can keep tabs on him. It has advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are you can stay on top of academics. Disadvantages is everyone knows I’m his mom.”

Riley Hinds:

How does it feel getting taught by your mom?

“It’s just like having a normal teacher.”

Regeana Hinds:

How does it feel to teach your son?

“It’s just like teaching any other student. I discipline him the same. He gets a zero just like everybody else. I dont remind him at home about any assignments. If I can’t remind my other students I won’t remind Riley.”

“We can pass notes. It’s really good that we don’t have lunch together because then we can still tell each other about our day when we get home.”

“It would be different but I think we could find a way to make it work if we had to.”
