Q&A with Nancy Cameron

June 17, 2020

What did you like most about your job? 

Seeing students learn. I enjoyed talking with them, having interactions with them, as well as interacting with other staff members. 

What are you going to miss most about teaching at Lincoln?  

The ‘hands-on’ lab activities that students found fun to do.

How did you get into biology?  

I really liked life science when I was in high school. At first, I wanted to be a veterinarian when in college. However, I soon realized that I would adopt every animal that came to the vet clinic. Another good experience was when I worked as a camp counselor and teacher during the summers. So, eventually, the two favorites (life science and teaching) joined, and I soon became a biology teacher.

What do you plan to do in your retirement?

Have fun!! Ride my Harley-Davidson. Tour the country. Run trails. Read a book. 

What was your favorite experience at Lincoln and why?  

Lincoln is at its best when students are able to share their talents. Many memorable experiences throughout the year: Homecoming week (each day is different), Valentine’s Day and the singing telegrams, the art show and display, and senior awards. I’m not sure I should say it…. senior pranks, as well. How fun! I will always remember the geese in the science hall!

Do you have any advice or last words for the students and faculty at Lincoln?  

Yes. Be strong and resilient; Use your voice, but be wise in how you use it. And, most of all: take care of yourselves. I love you all; you have been a great part of my life!  Virtual hugs!
