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!
