Ball of Sunshine

Alice Oshin, Staff Writer

Interviews can be a bore, but an interview with Algebra 1 and 2 teacher Mrs. Juakina Funches is the complete opposite. This mother of two is a fun ball of sunshine that loves to teach, loves the color pink, loves R&B and Reggae music, loves life, and appreciates people for their talents. One conversation with her and you will leave with knowledge and a smile to continue on a good day. Being a teacher can be stressful for some people but for Mrs. Funches it’s fun. She is originally from Maryland but she attended college in Miami at Florida Memorial University. Her first career was airway flying and computer science.  She decided to leave that career alone because it was boring. Guess it was the best move for her.
