MVN: Why did you want to work at the school?

MVN: Where did you receive your higher education?
LL: I do not have a bachelor’s. I did go to college for a couple of years. It was a private college, many, many years ago, which has now been closed.
MVN: What are some goals that you have for the school?
LL: I want to do the very best that I can, in the role that I have, and help as many students and administrators as much as I can.
MVN: What are your goals outside of school?
LL: I just live each day to the best that I can and help as many people as I can.

MVN: What was your favorite subject in school? Why?
LL: English, because it made sense to me.
MVN: What were your first impressions of the school?
LL: It’s very welcoming, and just a good place with high standards. Feel the energy of the students and the staff?
MVN: What are you nervous about this year?
LL: How kids feel about all of the COVID things. How does that affect their learning? Obviously, school can be challenging enough without adding extra stressors, and with COVID and all of that going on it can put a lot more pressure on students learning.
MVN: What is your favorite thing about Mill Valley so far?
LL: I think just the energy of the students and the energy of the staff. The energy around the athletics program is amazing.
