Employees of the Week


DECEMBER 2 - 6, 2019 


Lindsay Shaughnessy, Math teacher at Valley High School, has been selected as our Certified “Employee of the Week.” She and her husband, Derrick, have five “fur babies;” dogs Cooper and Isaac and cats Ewok, Willy, and Barbara.

            A native of Georgia, Lindsay graduated Roswell High School in 2008 before attending Kennesaw State University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics.

            “My teaching philosophy can vary depending on my students,” said Shaughnessy. “For those who are vocal about their distaste for mathematics, I tend to ask them about their feelings on certain words, topics and exercises. Voicing initial fears of the subject allows students to regain control and build confidence.”

            In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys DIY projects, interior design, family road trips, Atlanta Braves baseball, and spending time with her fur babies. She is also a Project 7 Club sponsor at VHS, and attends The Oaks Church in Opelika.


DECEMBER 2 - 6, 2019


Paula Smith, Lunchroom Manager at Bob Harding-Shawmut Elementary School, has been selected as our Support Staff “Employee of the Week.” Paula is married to Lamar Smith and they have two children; Shelby and Skylar.

            A native of Chambers County, Paula received an Accounting Certificate from Opelika Tech.

            “I like to hear the funny comments that students come up with when passing through the lunch line,” said Smith.

            In her spare time Paula enjoys watching Hallmark movies.
