Meet the Staff: Lindsey

What do you do at the CCE?

I am one of the first-year bloggers.

Describe your family:

My family is really important to me. I am the oldest child, and have a younger sister that is a junior at my alma mater Notre Dame Academy. I am very close with my parents and grandparents, whom I consider to be my greatest fans and confidants. My aunts, uncles, and cousins are also very supportive and have really inspired me to push myself.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love singing, dancing, and playing music. I am currently a clarinet player in the Pride of Dayton marching band.

Why do you support Catholic Education?

I have been very blessed to have attended Catholic schools my whole life. I love being able to learn about and practice my faith while at school.

What Catholic Education topic are you most passionate about?

I am most passionate about the inherent dignity of human life. I firmly believe that everyone should be treated with respect and equality.

What is one piece of advice you would give to Catholic Educators?

In the words of Albert Einstein, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Recognize everyone has their own passions and skills, and encourage your students to follow them.

Who is your role model?

My teachers over the years have really inspired me. My former teacher and mentor, Sr. Colleen Marie Cousino, has always held me to a higher standard and challenged me to become the best I can be. She encouraged me to follow my passions and interests by learning more about them both in and out of the classroom. I hope to cultivate a love of learning like she did in my future students.

Tell us three fun facts about you:

I love, love, LOVE animals. I have even touched sharks and fed a giraffe!

I’m afraid of rollercoasters, but enjoy zip-lining.

The Harry Potter series is my favorite book series. (Gryffindor for life!)

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary

In his encyclical Ingravescentibus Malis (1937), Pope Pius XI stated that the Rosary can be used ?as a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight, to preserve the integrity of life, to acquire virtue more easily, and in a word to attain real peace among men.?
