(after letting her sister do her make-up)

Hi, my name is Tooti Eirmann…well, my real name is Lea-Or Toot Zarfati-Eirmann, but everybody calls me Tooti.

I am in seventh grade, although I ended up skipping sixth grade because, in order to come to LiHigh, I had to be bumped up a grade.

I turn 11 on August 20. I love to sleep, and think school should start at like 10:00 AM so people can actually sleep in, but school should still end at 3:00. I think people need to sleep more.

I am not the most organized person AT ALL, and I get distracted very easily, even though I don’t mean to.

My favorite genre of TV show would be teen horror because i don’t just like to scare myself…I LOVE to scare myself. Some of my favorite movies are Fiddler On The Roof, My Fair Lady, and The Sound Of Music.

I am Jewish but I do not go to synagogue (the equivalent of church for Jews). For preschool, I went to Tinmouth; for kindergarten, I went to the Mettowee Community School, and then I was home-schooled until the end of fourth grade. I went to Middletown Springs Elementary School for fifth grade, and now this year, I am here at LiHigh.

I love to sing and I play guitar, flute, a little ukelele, and I am learning piano. I LOVE music.

So that is a little bit about me, and I hope you say hello!

Hi, I'm Kyle. I'm an advisor at LiHigh School. I've been involved in progressive education since I was in high school. I was an original member (and student representative) of the Progressive Program at Green Mountain College, and for my Master's degree, I attended Goddard College, which started the trend toward progressive education in the 1960s. Along with teaching at LiHigh School, I teach courses in creative writing and communications at Green Mountain College. I live with my wife and daughter in Poultney.

  1. Hey Tooti! You sure have moved around a bit in school, hope LiHigh is a great fit and you find a wonderful ‘sense of place’ there. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself. Cool you have such a connection to music.

  2. Hey Tooti! I know your mom and once dissected pig eyeballs with you. Your make up looks cool!
