Syosset High School Social Studies teacher Daniel Wohl will appear as a contestant on Jeopardy! on Wednesday, February 8th.
Mr. Wohl began applying more than two years ago. When asked on the application why he loves the 30-minute game show, Mr. Wohl wrote, “each episode feels like a tiny microcosm of the world as it should be – a world where intelligence is rewarded, where curiosity is valued, and where knowledge is celebrated.” About 100,000 people apply every year to be on the show, and only 400 are chosen to compete.
“The opportunity to compete on Jeopardy! is the fulfillment of a lifelong personal goal,” Mr. Wohl said. “I believe my appearance also reflects Syosset’s mission of cultivating intellectual potential and inspiring a lifetime of learning.”
In his first year as a Syosset teacher, the senior class voted Mr. Wohl “most likely to win Jeopardy!” We will watch on February 8th to see if the senior class guessed right.
Congrats, Mr. Wohl, on this amazing accomplishment!
