Lois J. Lamb, Retired English Educator at Caledonia Community School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in English.
Ms. Lamb’s mother and grandmother were schoolteachers. Ms. Lamb felt that teaching was something she needed to do. Everybody told her that she should become a teacher. Ms. Lamb’s English teacher, Ann Clarke, inspired her and motivated her because of her kindness; she was able to bring English to life. Ms. Lamb earned a Bachelor of Arts from Michigan State University in 1954. She then received a Master of Arts from Western Michigan University in 1960. Upon completion of her degrees, she became a certified secondary teacher.
Ms. Lamb taught an AP class, and sometimes she got a group of kids that were with her every minute. The students were seniors and since she had been at Caledonia for so long, she also taught their parents. Some people thought that she took too much from her students, however, she really did enjoy teaching them. She had to be like that with her students because they were still children even though they were 18 years old. Ms. Lamb began her career in 1955 as a teacher at Kalamazoo Publics Schools, remaining until 1956. From there, she joined Niles Public Schools as a teacher until 1960. In 1962, she became an English teacher with Caledonia Community School, where she remained until her retirement in 1996. As a testament to her success, Ms. Lamb was inducted as a member of the National Education Association, the Michigan Education Association, and the Caledonia Community Education, where she served as a secretary from 1968 to 1972. She was also the president and vice president of Rockford Business & Professional Women’s Club from 1973 to 1975 and a member of the Nature Conservancy, the Arbor Day Foundation, and K911 Canine Rescue.
