Happy Friday!! This week's #fabulousfemalefriday
features Ann Wilmot! I met Ann through her husband, Chris, who is one of my coworkers.
Both Ann and Chris are very kind people, who have become good friends of ours.
Ann works in the same school district as me and Chris, and she is a guidance
counselor. While Ann was working at McGalliard Elementary, Chris and I were lucky to have former students of hers at the middle school. They were always so excited to find out that after having (and adoring) Mrs. Wilmot, that they were now going to have Mr. Wilmot as a teacher. It was adorable! Now that Ann has switched to one of the high schools in our district, she will have our former students!
1. What would you list as your
My best quality is being an
empathic and mostly patient person.
2. When do you feel your
I feel my strongest when I'm
spiritually balanced and keep in mind that there is a purpose for everything
your most difficult days, what keeps you going?
I had a wonderful mentor in my late
father, who was a motivator, and I have many positive people among
my family and friends.
do you value the most in yourself, you relationship with your spouse/partner,
and your family?
I value connecting through
conversation among my spouse and family. As a busy working parent, it's
important to set aside time with friends, to be together, and
make the most of it.
far, what have been your greatest accomplishment(s) in your career?
I've always been a career
"underdog", by which I mean that I've been in the right place at the
right time to get jobs I'm almost qualified for. I've had to scramble to
get the remaining qualifications, while learning the components of the actual
job, as I'm doing it. I'm proud that it has helped me
develop determination and flexibility.
I'm also thrilled with what we
accomplished at McGalliard School during my time there - winning state and national
recognition for our school climate. Because of these accomplishments, other schools within Hamilton
have looked to McGalliard and our team, as role models, which I didn't expect.
advice would you give to your younger self?
My younger self was in a hurry (like
many younger selves), so I would have told me to slow down, and enjoy the
7. What do you look forward to
I look forward to the slower
moments of life.
8. What has been your biggest
failure, and how have you overcome it?
I was a huge procrastinator who would
pull things off at the last minute, and I have learned to at least get started
with things. I also failed at being an Accounting major but that worked
out well. ;)
