Did you know that when Principal Lois Menard was the same age as her students, she was selling fishing worms, working as a waitress, picking up 12,000 spark plugs on an assembly line during the midnight shift, and doing sales in a music store, while being a full-time student? Sharing these experiences with her students builds relationships and relatability as they work through their educational goals.
