Meet Mrs. Lucy Kincaid

We asked our teachers & staff a few questions so that you can get to know them better!

What is your role at St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic School?
School Counselor

What year did you start working at St. Stephen?

Tell us about your education background & about your teaching/work experience.
I have a BS in elementary Education, I started teaching 4th grade at SSM then I received a Major in Elementary Counseling and I started shortly after graduating becoming the school's Counselor.

What do you love about your job?
Mostly interacting with the students.

Who is your favorite Saint or what is your favorite scripture?
The Virgin Mary, I pray to her when my four children are in need of her help.

Tell us about your family (spouse, children, grandchildren, pets, etc.):
I have been married 44 years (happily)--it's interesting how fast the time goes by. I have 4 children all grown up--from ages 42 to 30 years of age. I have 5 grandchildren, and 2 Beagle dogs that are now our babies.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to become a teacher 🙂

What is your favorite sweet treat?
I love cookies!!

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
I am bilingual so when I go in the various classes for guidance I will speak Spanish to the students and teach them a few words. I also love to talk to the kinders with my puppets--it's so much fun to see their eyes light up when I'm speaking as the puppet.

What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
I love to go to different restaurants , and go to shows, I also love spending time with my grandchildren.

What piece of advice would you give parents to help their child(ren) succeed at St. Stephen?
My advice as far as disciplining is to pre-teach your children how to act appropriately, even role play the scenarios that way they know how to act in school and other situations. Also if you say, "No" to your children, don't give in unless it's absolutely necessary, otherwise and when you say, "Yes", they won't take you seriously next time.
