• A Special Message for 5th Graders from Mrs. Lyons and Mrs. Vicini




    Our Volunteer Spotlight guest is....

    Mrs. Higgens!

    Mrs. Higgens

    First let me say I miss all my friends at Strausser, the elementary students, their teachers, and all the support people. You have no idea how much you have become a part of my life for the past thirteen years.

    Fun Facts About Mrs. Higgens:

    I was born in New Jersey (I know I don’t talk like I come from NJ, but my sister does!)

    I went to college in Pittsburgh and after I was married lived in New Orleans and Buffalo before moving to Ohio.

    My daughter and granddaughter graduated from Jackson. My daughter went to Lake Cable and my granddaughter went to Strausser.

    What do I like to eat? 

    I tell people I’m still searching for one I don’t like! I like everything especially seafood.. I think that is part of why I enjoy visiting Cape Cod and Hilton Head.

    I have always enjoyed reading and going to libraries, especially the one in New York City.

    My favorites are murder mysteries although I am a very nonviolent person! I enjoy gardening and knitting. Interesting combination?

    I taught Math (my favorite subject) at JMMS for twenty-five years and because I missed it so much when I retired I started tutoring. I enjoy that very much.

    I hope to see you in the fall.
