Patrice Jenkins, left, and Ginger Sea at Disneyland in California during Jenkins’ weeklong trip. Also incorporate Disney into your school curriculum. How?
A: During independent work time, I allow my students to listen to Disney classical music. I conduct morning meetings every day, and the students and I recite a Disney quote I wear custom-made Disney-themed outfits to incorporate into lessons. I may be teaching about Mickey’s upcoming birthday. Students read Mickey Mouse math activity sheets, physics lessons on the operation of Disney theme park roller coasters and book club studies on Walt Disney’s li fairy and legacy.
Q: How much Disney memorabilia do you own?
A: I think half of my bedroom closet is Disney-themed, whether it’s stuffed animals, watches, clothes, shoes, pins or hats. The list keeps growing! Thank goodness my husband does not mind!
Q: Who is your favorite Disney character?
A: Cinderella. When I was a little girl, I’d watch that movie and envision myself in her place. Finding true love, having the animals as your best friend, living in a cute cottage – and once her prince found her, she lived happily ever after. That was my fantasy for so long that my husband and I had our Cinderella-themed wedding at the Orlando park.
Q: After this experience, what’s your favorite Disney resort?
A: Shanghai Disney – it’s such a beautiful attraction. My socks were blown off when I walked onto the property, but when I went to their castle, I just could not believe it!
Q: And your favorite ride at Disney?
A: Tron and Pirates of the Caribbean.
