A high school Spanish teacher from Chicago, Illinois...

Grafton Brown

I'm Grafton Brown, and I teach in Chicago, Illinois at Corliss High School.

How did your students react when they found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
When my students found out I was on the show, they were excited, and they've been pumpin' me up ever since.

What made you choose teaching as a career?
I just felt like it was important to give something back to my students--this is a second career for me. Give something back to the world, as a second career.

What do you enjoy most about teaching?
I think most of all I like to see those light bulbs come on over the students' heads when they "get it".

What is your dream category?
My dream category today would be BOB MARLEY SONGS.

Tune in! You might learn a thing or two!
