Ms. Andrea Georges teaches English, College Comp and PARCC Prep at METS Charter School. She is well known throughout most students at METS and was Teacher of the Month for September. If you don’t know her, here are some things to know as The METronome sat down with her recently:


The METronome: What is your favorite thing about METS?
Ms. Georges: My favorite thing about METS is the students, of course! They make my job fun and exciting, and I look forward to seeing them every day.


The MET: Do you have any tattoos? If you do, how many do you have?
Ms. Georges: Ha ha, I do! I have 22 tattoos and counting.


The MET: What do your tattoos mean?
Ms. Georges: Well I’m not going to explain ALL of them, but I can talk about some of my favorites! I have a portrait of my mom on my thigh — she’s my best friend and my biggest inspiration! I also have flowers on my arm. I think flowers are beautiful and wanted to get them tattooed to me!


The MET: Do you have any pets?
Ms. Georges: I do! I have two cats: Pickles and Dago (pronounced Day-Go)

The MET: Are you a dog person or cat person?
Ms. Georges: Both! I had a dog growing up. Her name was Sandy and she lived to be 18 years old! Cats are easy to take care of – and they LOVE to cuddle.


The MET: What are some fun things you like to do?
Ms. Georges: On weekends I like to volunteer at the Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City. I also like to ride my bike, practice yoga, and cook. Not to brag, but I’m a pretty good cook.


The MET: If you could have dinner with five people in the world, who would you choose? You could include me, if you want.
Ms. Georges: Oh, wow! Hard question. I guess I’d want to have dinner with the Obama family. I idolize them and strive to be like Michelle and Barack. Including Sasha and Malia, that’s four… so I guess you can come with me, too!


Thank you Ms. Georges!
