What’s your name?

Jeannine Yates

How long have you been in your profession?

I have been District Treasurer here at Galway CSD for almost a year.

What did you do before becoming district treasurer?

I have worked in various roles in business, Director of Development and Program Coordinator for nonprofit organizations, but I have also taught preschool.  I also was the Galway High School secretary.

What is your favorite part about being treasurer?

I like working with everyone in the school (the teachers, the business office personnel) and I get to make sure there’s enough money in the bank.

Do you have any regrets becoming treasurer?

I miss seeing all the students.

On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate Galway School?

I think it’s a pretty awesome place to go to school. I like the size of the school.

What is your favorite sport and why?

My favorite sport is soccer because my son plays soccer. I also like basketball because my other son is playing it. I like whatever sport my children play at the moment.

What is your favorite game to play?

I like to play Scrabble. I am a pretty good speller.

What’s your favorite book to read?

My favorite book of all time I read in college was called The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I liked the way it was written. There is a scene where she goes into water–it was written in such a way I could feel the water. Throughout the book you can feel what she is going through.

What is your favorite movie to watch?

My favorite movie is the Goonies, because I liked the adventure they went on.  I could watch it again and again, and it makes you want to go on the adventure.
