4. What is something funny a student has said to you? 
One time my classed missed our P.E. time because of a holiday. I told them we would be having make-up P.E. the next day. One of my little first grade girls raised her hand and said, "But Ms. Naughton, my Mommy doesn't let me wear make-up yet! Well, maybe just lip gloss!"

I was born and raised in a small town in Northern California called Guerneville. When I lived there it had no stop lights, just 1 four-way stop sign.

I hope to someday travel to Italy and Greece.
