A Letter From the Teditor
Author Ted Fairfield
Hello, my name is Ted, but some call me the Teditor (a.k.a. the Teditor-In-Chief of the Force File newspaper). I hope to spread my wisdom and knowledge to Charter students, new and old, by answering some of my most frequently asked questions.
What grade are you in?
I am a Senior at Charter, and after 6 fantastic years here, I hope to finish strong.
Now, you might be thinking, “Ted, or excuse me, Teditor, high school is only 4 years. How have you spent 6 years here?” Well, I’m not very good at math so 6 years might be a bit off. Anyways, I’m here in my final year ready to conquere every obstackle. Did I also mention I am bad at speling?
Who is your favorite teacher at Charter?
I love all of my teachers, but I especially love Mr. Messinger. I can’t tell you exactly why, but he is truly the kindest, most forgiving, most generous teacher I have ever had, and I am so grateful to have met a human being as nice as him.
“Teditor, what made you so popular at Charter?”
Ok, being fully transparent, I made that question up completely. I’m not popular at all. I write articles for the school newspaper. Isn’t that enough to prove I have no life?
Who is your high school crush?
Sanath Patil. Next question.
How did I get lost in the square building?
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? The world may never know.
What class should I not take.
Do NOT take AP Lunch. If anyone tells you it’s real, it is absolutely fake, and do not listen to anyone who says otherwise. Specifically, I’m talking about a writer for the newspaper last year named Ted Fairfield. Here was an excerpt from an article he wrote:
Despicable! I cannot believe that someone would lie and mock people so overtly as this Ted Fairfield guy. He must have tricked AT LEAST one kid into taking that class. Not that I speak from experience…
What is the single most important thing to succeeding at Charter?
Work hard, stay on a schedule, and care about the process rather than the result. What? You thought everything was going to be a joke?
Will you win a Nobel Prize for your stunning creativity in coming up with your nickname, the Teditor?
Sometimes geniuses pass unnoticed. Hopefully I will be recognized one day.
