Violet Brachman, age 5, lives in Greenwich Village, attends P.S. 41, kindergarten.

Favorite subject/activity: Blocks
Favorite teacher: Last year Violet attended First Presbyterian. Her favorite teachers at her old school were Hal, Thuy and Michelle because the boys used to dominate the blocks, so the teachers designated one day a week when only the girls could play with the blocks.

Looking forward to: “Playing on computers.” P.S. 41 has a whole computer room, which her old school did not have.
