Ayden Roscoe is 10 years old and has attended Discover U for two years. Prior to attending Discover U, he attended two different schools in two different school districts. Out of all three schools, he has enjoyed attending Discover U the most because of the small class sizes and improved teacher/student interaction.
Q. We heard you have lived in a lot of places, can you tell us some of them?
A. I lived in Anchorage, Alaska on Elmendorf Air Force Base for the first six months of my life. My middle name is Dynali. I was named after the Denali National Park in Alaska where I was born. My parents changed the spelling to make it a little different. We then moved to Glendale, Arizona where we lived on Luke Air Force Base for about a year. After that my family moved to Surprise, Arizona where we have lived for the past nine years. I like living in Arizona because I can participate in outdoor activities year-round.
Q. What is your favorite thing about Discover U?
A. My favorite thing about Discover U is that all the teachers and staff are nice. I also like that my class is small and it is not as disruptive as when I went to a traditional public school. I also really enjoy the playground area and all the things this school has to offer.
Q. What is it like to have your mom work at your school?
A. Having my mom work at my school is fun because I get to see her everyday. I also enjoy my mom working at my school because I know if I ever need anything, she is close by and able to be there for me. On the other hand, sometimes I don’t like it because when I get in trouble I know she will soon hear about it and I will get into more trouble.
Q. Tell us about some of your favorite subjects.
A. My favorite subject is language arts because we get to read interesting stories in our Journeys books. I also like social studies because we got to do a really fun state project where we researched and learned about a chosen state. I also made a diorama of Alaska.
Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. When I grow up, I want to open my own motorsports shop such as a RideNow because I enjoy riding and being around off-road vehicles such as dirt bikes, atvs, side by sides, and other off-road vehicles. I have ridden dirt bikes, atvs and other off-road vehicles since I was three years old and have had a blast doing so.
Ayden is a fifth grader at Discover U.
