Clayton Topdemir, 9, is a math fan.
That’s his favorite subject at Denham Oaks Elementary, where he recently began fourth grade.
“It will help me with the economy and to learn what’s happening in the world,” he said.
What’s he most looking forward to learning this year?
“Advanced algebra,” Clayton said.
When he’s not studying for upcoming assignments, Clayton enjoys playing with his friends after school. He also enjoys reading.
"Mockingjay," the third book in The Hunger Games series, is his favorite book, because “it has suspense and action,” Clayton said.
The future paleontologist wants to spend his time on the job when he grows up learning about prehistoric life— “It will help me to learn about bones and I will get to see their broken bones,” Clayton said of his career choice.
The enthusiastic student said his favorite teacher so far in his educational career was Mrs. Soehl, “She pushed us and was so loving and kind,” he said.
Clayton enjoys spending time with his parents, too. The funniest thing they’ve ever said to him:
“'I am not a barcalounger’ when I like to lay on them and cuddle,” Clayton said.
