A kindergarten teacher from Brooklyn, New York...

Caitlin Millat

Students: "Good luck Miss Millat!"

My name is Caitlin Millat, I teach kindergarten at Achievement First Apollo Elementary School in Brooklyn, New York.

What made you choose teaching as a career?
I just really wanted to give something back to the community. Um, I love kids, and I felt like "What better way to spend my time than with 30 beautiful children all day long?"

How did your students react when they found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
Well, they're five, so their reactions were mostly, "What's Jeopardy!?" or "You're gonna be on TV!?" [Laughs]

What was your reaction when you found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
Uh, my reaction was shock, uh, nervousness, excitement, and then more nervousness, in that order.

What do you love most about Jeopardy!?
Um, I love watching and playing at home, I'm very competitive, as my students and my friends will tell you, so anything that involves competition, I'm on board with.

What is your dream category?
Uh, my dream category would either be COLLEGE BASKETBALL or JANE AUSTEN. Kind of different, but... [Laughs]

Tune in! You might learn a thing or two!
