Hi! I'm your Muggle Studies teacher. I was a Ravenclaw, so I look forward to interacting with my former house's new residents. It's my first year, and I've been living in Muggle Canada since graduating from Hogwarts. My name is Aleksandr Whitman. You can all call me Alek. See you on Wednesday for class!
