What are some interesting facts about yourself?
“After an 18 year career in the LSU Ag Center’s Extension Program, I accepted a teaching position at Nicholls in the FACS department to return home to care for aging parents. I now keep busy with 2 grown children and their families that include 3 grandchildren. I love to travel and have been to Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, and Puerto Rico in the last 3 years. I am currently planning a trip to Europe. My best vacation destination is to a beach! Besides traveling, I love to read best sellers and walk on my treadmill.” Complete one of the following statements: “My dream job other than teaching at Nicholls would be…” -OR- “My future career aspirations include…” “My dream job other than teaching at Nicholls would be to be a tour guide in Europe where I could learn about various attractions while visiting other countries and immersing myself in their cultures. Answer one of the following questions: If you were to win the lottery, what would you do with the winnings? -OR- If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? “If I were to win the lottery, I would set up retirement accounts for my two children and education accounts for my three grandchildren. I’d also make various donations to education non-profits and youth programs.”
