Junior high science teacher Tracy Lobins arrived in late October for her first year at Saegertown. In previous years this position was held by Mr. George Nahay, and the position was filled temporarily by Ms. Alicia Weiss at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.
Ms. Lobins felt that her first year went well. “The kids got to know me, which was nice,” Lobins said. “It was great. The staff is super friendly.”
The events Saegertown had to offer also pleased her. “The building had many fun events like the ice cream social, and the field day for Junior High Students.” While she enjoyed those events, her favorite one from the school year was the lip sync contest in December. “It was fun seeing all the kids join in and dance.” Most will remember that Lobins participated in the amazing junior high teacher lip sync to “YMCA” by the Village people.
Ms. Lobins plans to get married to Jake Moore in October 2018. Her wedding will take place at a YMCA Camp named Camp Coffman. One of her best friends who also happens to teach at Saegertown, Ms. Kara Bechtel, will be married over this summer as well. “I’m excited for Ms. Bechtel and me both getting married this year,” Lobins said.
Ms. Lobins did find a few differences from her old school compared to Saegertown. “There is a lot more school spirit here, and it seems that the kids like to be here.” Overall, she has enjoyed her first year at Saegertown. “It was a successful year for me, everything went well.”
