TRL: How did you first hear about this position at the school?

LP: I have family friends who work in the district, and when the position became open, one of them thought that I would be a good fit with my cheer background and recommended that I apply for the job.

TRL: What did you do before coming to the school?

LP: I taught English in Oklahoma at a middle school, and before that I went to OU.

TRL: What did you study at The University of Oklahoma?

LP: English language arts education–it’s basically english literature meets secondary education, so I studied to be a high school English teacher.

TRL: Were you planning on moving back or did you move back when you got the position?

TRL: How did you get the leadership position here?

LP: I was looking for a job mid year and this one opened up. I was really excited for the opportunity to work at Lovejoy, I’ve heard great things about this school. I thought the cheer position sounded really fun too, and I thought that I had a good background in leadership and that the writing speeches component and that kind of thing could go along with my English background as well.
