Boys Home staff and students are excited to announce Lorraine “Susie” Keller’s five-year work anniversary. She serves as a full-time teacher and student testing coordinator. Susie is passionate about education and has worked in the field for many years. Prior to Boys Home, she worked in the Alleghany County Public School System for over twenty-five years. Susie was asked about what motivated her to choose education as a career path. She stated, “In 7th grade, my teacher Mrs. Diane Laws, inspired me to want to be an educator. She was my mentor, role model and someone I admired. I saw that she changed the lives of her students, built individual bonds and gave them every opportunity to learn.”
Susie was also asked what she enjoys most about her current position. She stated, “I have built a great rapport with my students. We may not agree on everything, but we respect each other’s opinions. My philosophy for my classroom is ‘we are all in this together and we will succeed together.’ I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such a supportive administrator, great co-workers and an excellent work environment at the Boys Home School. I am excited to see how much we will learn together as the school year continues.” Susie is known for her outgoing personality and bright smile around the Boys Home community. She helps to live the Boys Home vision of a community that inspires young men to positively impact those around them. Congratulations, Susie!
