Teacher Interview: Mrs. Glasgow
Updated: Oct 12
This week, I had the privilege of interviewing the extremely popular Mrs. Glasgow. You may know her from her AP Psychology class, insanely cool office space, counseling work or any of the other many things that she does here at North Shore.
From the start, Mrs. Glasgow has always been drawn to Psychology. Her interest was amplified when a close relative was diagnosed with a mental health disorder. She was immediately intrigued and wanted to learn more and more about human behavior. Mrs. Glasgow may have changed her major five times in college, but nevertheless, everybody around her was certain that she was destined to be a counselor.
Mrs. Glasgow has an abundance of experience as a counselor. Before landing her dream job at North Shore, she worked in other schools as a guidance counselor, did street outreach to help homeless youth find food and shelter and was a clinical counselor in a medical office. She is a certified grief counselor and worked in a hospice, a type of health care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill patient’s pain and symptoms and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs at the end of life. She says that the experience was incredibly sad, yet rewarding at the same time, “Hospice patients shared the most beautiful and touching stories at the end of their lives.”
Mrs. Glasgow loved working as a counselor, but she was destined to do more. As per her love of public speaking and storytelling, she was eager to teach. When she came across a job that was looking for a teacher and counselor, she immediately knew that she wanted it!
Mrs. G loves North Shore for its “cool atmosphere” and polite students who are always eager to learn.
She is a “huge travel addict” who loves to take pictures, sing, occasionally play the guitar, go on hikes with her puppy named Luna and hang out with her friends and family. She is a massive book worm and recently landed her hands on an original, first print edition of a Mark Twain book.
