Teacher Feature: Ms. Hannah Keith
By Savanna Qualls
After sitting down with one of our new math teachers, Ms. Hannah Keith, we get a brief glimpse into a multi-talented and multifacted person who chose (among her many options) to become a mathematician.
Savanna: Where are you from?
Keith: Franklin, Kentucky.
Savanna: What made you come to Logan County?
Keith: I got a chance to come and observe before I took the job and I really liked what I saw and everybody was super nice; and it felt like a family.
Savanna: Do you enjoy teaching at Logan County?
Keith: I do. I like it a lot.
Savanna: If you could build a perfect student, what would that student be like?
Keith: Oh, that’s a hard one. The student would work really hard in class, be a leader to their classmates. I would also throw a little humor in there for the days when it’s a little bit harder.
Savanna: How did you choose what subject you wanted to teach?
Keith: Well, math was always my favorite, so I decided to teach other people how to do it.
Savanna: Have you always wanted to be a teacher?
Keith: Actually, no; I wanted to be a veterinarian.
Savanna: What changed your mind?
Keith: I didn’t want to have to go to school that long, so also that was the biggest thing. Plus, I knew I would cry every time I had to put an animal down.
Savanna: What are you watching on Netflix?
Keith: I like One Tree Hill.
Savanna: Do you have a favorite sports team?
Keith: I like the Kentucky Wildcats and the Tennessee Titans.
Savanna: Do you like football or basketball better?
Keith: I love watching both but I would rather play basketball.
Savanna: What talents do you have other than teaching? What career would you be in if it was based on your talents?
Keith: I would probably be a writer, like something to do with journalism. I actually had a creative writing major before I swapped.
