NOAH HOPKINS, New Faculty Spotlight

WHERE WERE YOU BORN?

Brigham City, Utah

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?

An Old Testament prophet

WHAT MADE YOU GET INTO TEACHING?

In the summer of 2006 I waited tables in Grant Village, Yellowstone National Park.  Some of my coworkers were from Slovakia, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, etc.  I found myself going hiking, swimming, dancing, and playing board games with them despite our language barrier.  Soon, I was teaching them English in these different situations.  Often they would comment that I should teach English in their countries.  Ultimately, I found something that I was good at and satisfied that need in our community.  

DO YOU HAVE A SPECAIL TALENT?

I play a few different musical instruments poorly (guitar, piano, electric bass, saxophone.)  Also, I'm a first generation college graduate.  

WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN  FROM HOME? 

Either New York-LaGuardia airport or the Ft. Lauderdale airport.  These cities were not part of my scheduled flight.  Never fly with Spirit Airlines.  

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?

I think I can tell if they are happy or not.

WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?

3M Precise Mounsing Surface

LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?

I have a toddler, I don't get to watch movies.

FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?

I don't watch sports, but I saw a middle-weight boxing match once and it was wonderful to see.  Marshall McLuhan said sports are ultimately culturally acceptable violence; an organized war for team profits. Now you see why I don't watch sports.

1. Charles Frazier-- Cold Mountain

2.  Cormac McCarthy-- No Country for Old Men

3.  Cormac McCarthy-- The Road

5.  D.H.Lawrence-- Sons and Lovers
