- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
Potions. It’s always potions. I think I would love it so much, because it’s quite similar to baking which is one of my favourite hobbies. In terms of muggle subjects, I adore art. I’d love magical art classes even more.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
The food would be well up there. Also, I just always really loved the idea of boarding school. Most of all, though, the magic.

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I’m a visual learner. I’ve done tests before, and I know for myself. I struggle to process something at all if I only have auditory input. If I can see something, and even more if I can do it, I understand.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
Boarding school. I always loved the idea as a kid. I didn’t get on well with my family so the idea of escaping was appealing. Plus really living with your schoolmates, midnight feasts, all kinds of shenanigans you never get if you’re going home each day.

My favorite wizarding classes are probably flying and potions. I've always had a soft spot for potions and I love learning about them. Flying is also one of my favorites because I love learning about the different teams and players. I am taking all the available classes this year and enjoying them all though.
As for muggle classes, biology is my favorite. I enjoy learning about how everything in life works. Everything from the human body to the ecosystem. But honestly learning about animals and humans in a biological sense is definitely on the top of the list when it comes to biology topics.
Maybe I'm just a nerd but I would be most excited to learn at Hogwarts. Much like Hermione, I'd probably end up taking more classes than possible and having to find a way to make it work. That's not to say I'm as smart as she is, but I'd definitely be as enthusiastic as her.
Personally I'm a mix between reading/writing and kinaesthetic learning. Even if I hadn't realised this myself, the tests at school would have confirmed it for me 😂
I'm in public school but I think I would thrive best in home school (in the muggle world then.... 100% boarding school if Hogwarts was an option). I struggle with anxiety so home schooling would have it's benefits.

My favourite wizarding class would probably be Arithmancy or Ancient Runes. Arithmancy has a clear right or wrong answer interms of working out a solution, the rest is just interpretstion of the solid fact, which suits me. It also includes maths, which I love. In terms of Muggle subjects, it was always Maths and Business Studies for me. These subjects interested me the most, were what I considered, the most useful subjects, and are two of the subjects I studied almost right to the end of my academic career.

For me, I think something like Flying would be interesting. Its something that you wouldn't normally study ans could be interesting to learn more about. It would also allow me to be a little more reckless too, which would benefit me emotionally. I would also love to try the food. I imagine it would be so much nicer than ours.

I'm very much a written learner. I need it written down before me so I can read it at my own pace, absorb what I need to and then process the information accordingly. Visual aids are helpful, but not a necessity for me all the time.

I was schooled at a public school, so I always would have liked to consider the option of boarding. It probably wouldn't work for me as I would get homesick quickly but it's something i wouldnhave liked to have considered. It would be nice to be with my friends the whole time, rather than just communicating at school back in the days before mobile phones were in every pocket.

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
Wizarding class would be Potions. I have always been interested in how they are brewed and what they do. My favorite Muggle class would be Astronomy. I can't get enough about learning about stars.galaxies, planets, nebula etc, To bad it's not offered as a grad course.
- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
I would love to be in a castle. Living there and taking classes there would be amazing. Castles have always interested me...since I was a child. I have always wanted to own one...or live in one. The classes would be interesting. I love learning. The only ones I would not like would be Arithmancy and Divination. Quidditch would also be a passion. It looks like a lot of fun to play.
- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I am more of a Readers/writers. It is easier for me to learn if it is written down in front of me. I can go at my own pace and re-read what I need to. Kinesthetic would come in a close second. It reinforces what I have learned and it would help me remember.
- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
I went to a public school. I had always wanted to go to a boarding school. It would teach a whole different set of things. You would be on your own and have to learn to cope with situations without asking mom and dad for help. I think it would help you mature faster. I also think you would get a better education. (depending on the quality of the school)

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
Cooking with Magic is what I'm looking forward to most this year. Hands down. I really love baking and potions seems like another - more extreme - version of it. My favorite Muggle studies is Literature. A bookworm like myself doesn't really need to explain, do I? Lol. I think Criminal Justice was a fun class - my teacher strapped drunk goggles on us and let us drive a go-cart around an obstacle course to teach the dangers of drunk driving - and imaging the magical equivalent is super fun. "This is why you shouldn't fly impaired, kids. Broom handles can end up in some horrific places," or "(Name) finished the course without vomiting or injuring anyone, 10 points to Hufflepuff," comes to mind.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
Bring me the food. Let me snoop around a magical boarding-school brimming with magic and the unknown, let me run to the dining hall covered in twigs and leaves from the greenhouse to eat with attractive and worldly classmates/staff. Let me be taught knowledge I won't likely get anywhere else-- at least not in the Muggle world. I mean, hello, magic stuff is cool.'

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I'm definitely a mix of Visual and Kinesthetic learning. Seeing how something is put together, done, etc., and then recreating jt teaches me more than looking at a chart and being told what goes where.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
I've been home-schooled (where I taught myself with a computer program ugh), gone to public school (horrible funding, not-the-best-staff/learning experiences, bullied by teachers, etc) and gone to a private charter school where I had the same issues as public school. Gimme the boarding school. Bring it on. I'm not sure it can throw anything else at me and if it does, it'll be an awfully big adventure.

My favourite wizarding classes on HEX are Postmortem Studies and Hogwarts to 1997. Its strange because I really don't enjoy History as a muggle subject, and much prefer Maths and Science. If I was to attend Hogwarts I think my favourite part would be being in the Great Hall for mealtimes - enjoying great food and getting to sit at the house table. I just imagine it being warm and cosy and really yummy.

I think I'm a mix or auditory and reader/writer when it comes to learning. I tend to talk aloud as I write things down, and then read aloud as I read them back. I'm not really sure why this works best for me - or whether it even is the best for me, it's just the way I tend to find myself going.

I went to public school but would have loved to have tried boarding school or even private school, just to see the comparison. I don't think that in general as long as you're in a school with good teachers and a class of students who want to learn that you will have a good education. It's just there is always a risk that there will be disruptive people in your class or teachers who don't work in ways that you understand easily.

- What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why? My favourite was the piece about home-schooling, as I've always wondered how Wizarding families would go about it. The part about learning through memories in a pensieve is a very creative idea. That way, you don't have to be the best in a certain subject, you just have to have experienced it being taught. Though I personally would much rather attend Hogwarts and experience all that it has to offer than be stuck learning at home, I can see how it would be appealing to some parents - especially if their children are vulnerable in some way or have special needs that need more care and attention than Hogwarts could offer.

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why? The Wizarding subjects I'm most interested in are Divination and History of Magic (I also love Postmortem Studies, but I don't have it this year!) I've always been interested in history, but also the supernatural, so I love learning about ghosts and how they lived and died. It seems strange that out of my two favourite subjects this year, one is dealing about facts from the past and the other deals with the possibilities (that may not be factually accurate) of the future, but I have always found divination techniques like tea leaf reading and palmistry interesting. My favourite Muggle subjects were always English, History, Drama and Psychology - though I was also quite good at languages.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why? Everything! The feasts and the food, the lessons and the magic, the Common Room and dormitories and all the holidays there: Halloween, Easter, Christmas, Valentine's Day - not to mention being able to go to Hogsmeade and buy loads of sweets!

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why? 
- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
For languages,I'm better with auditory learning, but for everything else Kinesthetic. I do well practicing and recreating. For my Psychology A Levels I gathered all of my previously written A graded essays and wrote them out over and over until I could write them off by heart. Fortunately, most of them came up on the exam, so there was only one essay that I hadn't rehearsed and I'd literally just been reading about it in the car on the way to the exam hall.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?  I went to public school and I really enjoyed it. My dad wanted to send me to private school an hours drive away like my brother, but he hardly had any friends there as they all lived near the school and he didn't, so I didn't want to go that route. There was a private school nearer on the other side of the city, but it was never mentioned. I don't like the sound of being homeschooled, and other than Hogwarts I wouldn't be interested in boarding school. I'm quite down to earth so would just like a normal (but good) public school.

I signed up for all 13 classes this year (as I do every year), and so far my favorite wizarding classes are Potions, Herbology, Charms, Transfiguration and Defense Against the Dark Arts. I prefer them to more passive classes like Astronomy, Muggle Studies and History of Magic.
At Hogwarts I'd be most excited about learning practical applications of Transfiguration, D.A.D.A. and Charms. I'd also really get into Potions and Herbology. It's one thing to read a textbook and quite another to actually use spells and make potions.
My favorite Muggle subjects, on the other hand, were American Literature, American History, French and Ecology.
I think I have been all types of learner, depending on the subject taught - I've probably been every type of learner in one subject. I probably gravitate more toward the Kinesthetic, though. I was a Biology major in college, and I really liked the labs because of the hands-on experience. In my music, I play almost entirely by ear, which may seem on the surface to be Auditory, but playing music by ear also has Kinesthetic properties.
I really enjoyed my four years at a small, private liberal arts college where I lived on campus. I was totally immersed in the academic and social experience of college, and the student/professor ratio was 8:1 - so I had mostly small classes.

My favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast is the one written by Ariana Rosier and hosted by ilostmyleftshoe, Ghosts. I already know what I've heard from it, but it still fascinates me to listen to them and know them again. Ghosts and stories around them have a pull on me, and that's why this segment is my favorite.

In relevance to what I've said above, the wizarding class that I'm interested in this year is Postmortem Studies II. It has something to do with death, and thus it is related to ghosts and such. For muggle subjects, I like the most is Mathematics. The reason is simply that I understand it well than other subjects.

I think the aspects of Hogwarts that would excite me the most is the chance to learn different kinds of spells. I also like the part of eating foods served there because it is always like a feast!!! Don't you want to try those mouth-watering food?!

I think I'm Kinesthetic. I like rewriting my notes and answering my exercises and quizzes again to know if I already get how to answer it. It feels like reviewing again what you had learned so far.

I prefer a boarding school or a private school. For boarding school, it is merely for the fun and experience, while for the private school, I was enrolled in private schools since then, so I don't think I'd like to study in public schools. Well, here in my country, it is better to study in private schools because their facility is better than public schools.

What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why? I wasn't here in September, so I can't answer this. Sorry.
What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? I love history, so I'm enjoying the History of magic, and also the Hogwarts to 1997 because I love HP. I think if I was going to Hogwarts, potions would be one of my favourites, so that is one of my favourites too. Although, to be fair, I am enjoying all of the classes.
What Muggle subjects do you like the most? I love English, History and Science Why? I love English because I am a writer and it comes the easiest to me I think. I write when I'm emotional as well as for fun so it means a lot in my life. I love History in general, I love watching History documentaries and learning all I can about it, so of course I enjoy the subject. I love science, I always excelled in it at school. I was studying to be a science teacher, so that's why I love it.
Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why? I've always loved the idea of a boarding school, and to be fair I think Hogwarts would be the best boarding school ever. The feasts would be amazing, Having your own common rooms to be in with your friends. I think I just love the whole idea of Hogwarts. And, I think all of the subjects would be amazing to study. I am such a Hermoine, I'm the one who would be in the library before school started, and doing homework as soon as we get it!
-There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Kinesthetic, and to a lesser extent reader/writer Why? I learn so much faster if I am doing whatever it is I'm meant to be learning, it just seems to be more natural for me that way. I can learn just from reading or writing it down, however it doesn't seem to stick as fast as if I was doing.
- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why? As I mentioned earlier, boarding school has always interested me, it was something I always wanted to do. I would have loved to be away from my family for a lot of if not all of the year! However, that being said, I am a mother of five and if I was well enough, I would be home schooling our children because I think it is much more tailored to the individual student. There is more to this particular subject however I won't go into it here.

The wizarding class I enjoy the most is probably charms, just because it's straightforward and easy to understand. I like specialty subjects as an idea, but haven't quite found the one that interests me the most ~
As for Muggle subjects, I used to love English the most. We studied Shakespeare and I had a great teacher who really made me enjoy these classes. Which is why I later went on and did a degree in English Literature ^_^

In Hogwarts, I think the part I'd be most excited for might be the clubs. It's strange, but right now I feel like I don't have enough group activities and shared interests with my friends. In a club, you know that all the people around you are interested in the same subject. As a grownup outside of Hogwarts, there aren't as many clubs and meetups for the specific subject you like, and when you do want to do something relating to that subject you realize that none of our friends are interested in joining >.<

I think I'm mostly a visual learner, though often it does also helps me to write things down so that I remember them better even without reading what I have written. So I guess I'm sort of a mix XD

The type of school I'd prefer the most is probably public school, which is where I studied too. Private schools and homeschooling aren't very popular in my country (I'm not even sure if homeschooling is even allowed). There are some boarding schools, but I'm sure that is not where I'd want to study at. As amazing as Hogwarts is, most schools aren't Hogwarts. And being in a boardig school, away from my family, would not only have been difficult for its obvious reasons (I'm really close with my family), but it also would have deprived me of being educated by my parents. And as great as a school might be, the education I got at home about what's right and wrong, how it should behave, it all resonated much stronger because it was the educated I received from my parents.

I really enjoyed the section on Homeschooling. My sister homeschools her son and I see a lot of parallels to the Wizarding world. The longer hours have been supper successful for her and her son. He is much better educated than his contemporaries in public schools.

I especially appreciated the idea of the ‘floating classrooms’. Again my sister and her family have a whole community of home schoolers and the kids form fantastic bonds as do their families.

****************************************


I am most interested in Ancient Runes. I have always had a fascination with runes of all sorts since I first was exposed to them in the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. It is appealing to study them from the wizarding perspective. I wish I had Arithmancy this year, it sounds so interesting and like it would be right up my alley.

As far as Muggle subjects go. I have always been into Mathematics. I like the fact that there is always an answer. Even if you may not do it in the prescribed method, answers are always available. I also loved taking Latin. If Classical Greek had been available at my school, I would have studied that also.

****************************************


For me it is a toss-up for the number one spot between the Library and the classes themselves. Yes I know I am a nerd. Ravenclaw is really my House, lol. But think of all the new things to learn. I. think a lot, if not most of my free time would be spent in the Library jus treading everything I could get my hands on. I would need to carry around two book bags: one for class books and one for all the extraneous ones.

I would also enjoy the unknown and magical aspects of the school. The portraits, the secret passages, the staircases and so much more ,all to just to name a few. The Black Lake and the Forbidden Forest have their appealing sides too. Plus attending and watching the Quidditch matches sounds like a lot of fun. I could just go on and on.

****************************************


I think I am a combination of Visual and Readers/Writers. I find I learn best on my own. I tend to absorb more information that way. I like to have the information presented to me, but when a teacher drones on and on, I tend to zone out because I already know half of what they are saying, because I have read ahead. I know that sounds rather egotistical, but it does happen. I am sure I am not the only one here who has felt that way.

****************************************


While I appreciate the benefits of homeschooling and have worked in public schools, I think if I could have my druthers, I would have preferred to have been sent to a boarding school. I realize that they are probably not like Hogwarts (one can dream), but I feel I would have been better off with no home distractions and I think the ease of wearing a school uniform would have taken a lot of stress of me as a teenager.

I'm really enjoying all the classes at the moment. I think if I had to choose it would be either astronomy, as it is really interesting for real life (I am kind of a science nerd), or herbology because I love learning about plants and nature. As for muggle subjects, I would have to say science, but I am also really interested in classics and ancient languages. An odd mix but hey, that's me!
If I was to go to Hogwarts the thing I would be most excited about would be living in the castle and having the feeling of community within my house. I would love the food in the great hall and having the grounds, forest and lake to explore. Basically I would love the entire thing. When can I go there?
I don't think it is fair to say that anyone is only one type of learner, I think that most of us are a combination of all of them. The best way to learn is to repeat with multiple styles.
I don't think I would actually like boarding school in reality. I would miss my family far too much and would hate the fact that I wouldn't get to leave. I would like a school that has good academic programs but also has options for outdoor education.

What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why?
This was my first time listening to the WWN broadcast, and I really enjoyed all the segments. But my favourite was probably the part about muggles and their education system, which made for a fun experience (even though I'm a Muggle-born, I don't really know that much about Muggle education).

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
Among the new subjects this year, I'm really looking forward to Wizarding Law, and Magical Trade & Commerce. My Postmortem Studies class, which I also took last year, is another favourite that I'm really excited to attend again.
Among the Muggle subjects that I have dabbled in a bit, my absolute favourite has to be Physics. I just love deciphering why different objects in the universe behave as they do!

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
Other than the opportunity to learn different branches of magic from the best in the field (though opinions may differ as to who is the best), I'm also excited to start making new friends, and start playing my first few Quidditch matches (eventually making Captain, fingers crossed!). Oh, and of course, explore the Hogwarts library, which is famous for its copies of rare books and manuscripts.

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I believe that I fall into the Readers/Writers category, as I deal best with written information, preferably if it is written in a clear, logical way. I have the most difficulty in retaining spoken information, and tend to immediately write down short notes after I listen to a lecture (if I'm unable to take notes during the lecture, that is!).

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
A boarding school experience would be pretty interesting, having been exposed to the public schooling system all my life.

- What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why?
It was the first one about homeschooling, because in my country, home schooling is not very popular and there are not a lot of parents, who would go on that road with their children. That's not because our school sistem is so good (God forbids), but the main reason for that is, that both primary and high schools are mostly public. There is small amount of private primary and high schools and they're not so good. I went to a private high school and the only good thing about it, were the friends I made there. My family paid a lot of money for me to go to a public college after high school, because of a bad experience in a high school. It's also true, that private colleges in my country are far bellow the public ones, also degree from public college is 'worth more' than the one from private college. Funny, right?

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
My absolute favourite this year is Wizarding literauture, because we are doing fairytales and I love fairytales. I also like Hogwarts to 1997, because it's always great to learn something new about Hogwarts. As for the Muggle subjects, I was a total Math freak, my classmates sometimes hated me for not having a problem with Math, but they forgot about that when I helped them with studying.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
Probably Quidditch, because it's one of the few sports that you don't have to have run or swimm or walk or work hard if I simplify. 😂 I would probably also love discovering all the secrets that the school is offering (all the secret passages, talking gargoyles, hidden corridors, chambers ect...)

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I'm totally Auditory type. I'm going to a law school and finding the right way to study is the most important thing, especially when you're reading a book with 500 to 1000 ages. The easiest way for me is to repeat everything out loud, so I can hear myself. Sometimes I look myself in the mirror and pretend that I explain it to someone else, and that person must remember that. It actually helps.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
As I said before, I went to a private school in a high school and it really wasn't the best experience of my life. I also went to a public college and that experience was hunder times better and it was more succesful for me too. The one thing I've always wanted to experienc was the boarding school, especially after I watched Gossip Girl, but sadly boarding schools doesn't exist (same as homeschooling). Maybe in another life.

- What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why?

My favorite article is Artificer Shopping. I enjoyed hearing about all the different magical alterations that had been made to muggle things.

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?

If I were going to Hogwarts, I think charms would be the class I would look forward to the most. It seems like it would be such a useful subject. Potions is also one I would look forward to taking. For muggle subjects I always liked History when I was in school.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?

This is hard one. I would be excited about everything. I would want to take the classes but also explore the castle find secret passageways and hidden rooms. It would also be fun to talk to the ghosts and portraits. I can’t pick just one thing. Everything about Hogwarts would excite me.

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?

I think I may be a combination of things. I’m not sure I really fit in just one category. While I like to read for pleasure when it comes to learning I do like to see what is happening not just hear about or read it. I also find that actually doing something can be helpful when it comes to learning it.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?

I think private school would be my first choice. It means smaller classes and more individual attention than public schools. You don’t get quite as much attention as you would from home schooling or the ability to work at your own pace which would be nice but you aren’t isolated from the other kids your age either. Boarding school might be fun at times but I think I would miss my family.

- What was your favorite segment of the September WWN Broadcast and why?
This would have to be the segment on the castle ghosts, for me. I really enjoy them as characters and feel they are extremely underrated and swept aside too often.
- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
I am fascinated by wand lore, currently. This is my first year taking it and I'm loving all the new things for this, especially the different wand cores and what they do and represent. As for muggle subjects, I've always loved art, music, theater, math, reading, writing, and science. Basically, everything but history outside of the eras and cultures that peak my interest at any given time. I have to be in the mood for history. Unless it's paranormal or unsolved things, then those are always interesting too.
- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
The library. I don't think I'd ever leave lol
- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I am mostly a Kinesthetic learner. While I can get pretty far with the other three forms of learning, I never truly retain something permanently until I've done it myself. Also, I have found that mixing all four elements into my learning, has the absolute highest success rate for me. Show me, tell me, let me read about it, then let me do it. Never fails. When I was tutoring, I tried to do the same and include each aspect of learning into my lessons. I feel that if teachers were able to do this for students more regularly with less focus on test taking, the results would shock many.
- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
I did both public and private schools growing up, and there were good things and bad things about both. I feel the same could be said about homeschooling and boarding school. We all learn in different ways and at different rates, and what works best for one person may not work at all for another. I don't think there is a best schooling method, more like what's best for an individual. For me, I can't pick a method of the four, because I only know two of the four and both of the two I encountered worked well for me in their own ways.

- What wizarding class(es) are you most interested in this year? What Muggle subjects do you like the most? Why?
As always I am taking all thirteen classes here at Hogwarts. My favorite subjects this year being Wand Lore, Potions, History of Magic , and Care of Magical Creatures. When I was still in Muggle school my favorite classes were History, English and Animal Sciences.

- Which aspects of Hogwarts would you be most excited for and why?
I am affraid I would be like Hermione and need a Time- Turner so that I could take every class offered, if truly available I would want to know and try everything. Transfiguration would certainly be on the top of my list.

- There are four types of learners: Visual (images/charts), Auditory (spoken information), Readers/Writers (written information), and Kinesthetic (recreating and practicing). Which type of learner do you think you are? Why?
I believe I am a combination of each type but I am definitely a Kinesthetic & Reader learner, I do first need to read if it's something new to me and then I have to be able to try and do it myself in order to better understand it. On some things I get it instantly which does surprise me greatly and other things I feel like I have rocks for brains- but with time and patience I usually get it.

- Which type of schooling would you prefer the most? (i.e. boarding school, home school, public/private school, etc.) Why?
When I was younger I always wished I got to got to boarding school. if just for a short time to see if I liked being away from home. As it was I attended public school and I will admit I did enjoy school, especially college. Home schooling would have never worked for me because I like the interaction of being with other kids my own age.
