Some of her friends would ask, “Lydia why would you go into the education field?” Her response was she always wanted to make a difference especially with underprivileged children, and one of the most effective ways she thought to make a difference in these children’s lives was to become a teacher. Another inspiration for her passion for teaching was growing up and seeing her mother’s interactions with former students. Going to the grocery store and watching adults come up to her mother and say with such enthusiasm, “Hi Ms. Hall!” or “Hey Ms. Dickerson!”, which is her maiden name, was a firsthand experience of how a great teacher’s impact on students can last a lifetime. Lydia’s outgoing personality and the love for all children helped her realize that she was making the right decision. She is a product of the Savannah Chatham school system and an alumni of Windsor Forest High School. After completing two years at Middle Georgia College she transferred to Armstrong Atlantic State University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Ms. Hall is in sixth year of teaching fourth grade at White Bluff Elementary School. Not only did Ms. Hall attend White Bluff all through elementary school, but she also did her student teaching there. It’s funny how life leads you in circles.
