It's Wildcat Wednesday! Every Wednesday, we will spotlight a member of the LR Wildcat family.
This week we are introducing you to Linda Keeth!
Middle School Computer/Keyboarding Teacher
Tell us about your family (human and/or fur family):
My husband is Les. We have one son, Colby and his wife is Stevie. We have two fur babies (dogs), Deuce and Ollie. We are KC Chief and Royals fans.
How long have you been a teacher/worked in education?
I have been teaching for 17 years.
How long have you worked for LR?
I have been teaching at LR for 13 years.
Why did you choose to work for LR?
I have always thought Logan-Rogersville was a great school district. I heard how wonderful it was to work in this district and it is wonderful to work here!
What is your favorite thing about working for LR?
I love all the people I work with. The middle school building is like one big family. We encourage and support each other and our students.
How did you know you wanted to be a teacher?
I have always wanted to become a teacher but did not go to college right out of high school. I worked for a prominent business in Springfield while I was getting a degree in Business Administration. I still had the desire to become a teacher. I finally went back to college, earned my degree in Education and have never regretted the decision to change careers.
What is something about you that might surprise people?
I have a degree in Criminal Justice.
What is your favorite quote?
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. —Maya Angelou
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
What's the weirdest job you've ever had?
I worked at a plastics factory that made plastic Easter Eggs and spaghetti sporks as well as plastic parts for small motors. I had to trim the extra plastic off the parts before they could be packaged for shipping.
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
My dream job would be to a travel around the world photographing the landscape and animals.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I wish I could play the piano. I used to sit next to my grandma and listen to her play. I regret that I never took the time to have her teach me to play.
What do you like to do when you're not at school?
I love to read. I read a lot, especially in the summer. I also love to travel. There is nothing better than taking off for the next destination. I would love to travel around America and visit all the different baseball and football stadiums.
Thank you Linda! We are so glad you’re a Wildcat!
