New Secretary Joins WHS Community!

New+Secretary+Joins+WHS+Community%21

Waterford High School has a new school secretary, Mrs. Camie Lozier. She can be found in the main office, making calls and answering questions from both students and parents. Although this is her first year working at WHS, and her first year being a school secretary, she previously worked at Oswegatchie’s library and additional elementary schools for eleven years. 

Lozier decided it was time for a change because the high school secretary seemed more of a ‘permanent’ position for her. She had heard great things about Waterford High School and came to the conclusion that joining Lancer Nation would not only provide her with more experience, but to supply her with ample opportunities for growth.

Mrs. Lozier manages phone calls, works the doors to let people in, and troubleshoots everything down in the main office. In spite of the fact that her job is busy, she likes to interact with everyone and get to know them. She says, “I like being able to spend a lot of time working with the new people, and talking with the students.”

A school secretary will often run into several problems, and since she is new, more problems have arose for her, but Mrs. Batty described her as ‘a great problem solver’ and ‘very accommodating.’In spite of her being a new addition to the team, Mrs. Batty depicts her as ‘bubbly’ and has brought really good energy to the whole office space. 

Mrs. Lozier has a lot of strengths, but one that Mrs. Batty really admires is her eagerness and her management skills. With access to Batty’s Calendar, Lozier helps her figure out what classes and what times are best to meet with students and even takes phone calls from parents. Lozier figures out if some are more pressing matters, which are very beneficial to Mrs. Batty and helps her prioritize her time better. Mrs. Batty said that she “takes very copious notes.” 

Being called down to the main office can often be an intimidating thing, but with Mrs. Lozier’s bubbly personality, it makes it a less stressful thing to endure. The interactions she has with the students, and even the parents, makes everyone’s lives a whole lot easier.

Mrs. Lozier is able to speak with students with such ease, due to the fact that she has two daughters of her own. Her oldest daughter, Aubrey, is 20 years old and attends college,  and Katie, her youngest daughter, is 19 years old and a college student as well. 

Lozier has lived in Ledyard for the last 23 years. On her drive to Waterford, she usually finds herself stopping for coffee at Starbucks. Her go to order is a super dark roast coffee with heavy cream; she prefers no sugar at all in her coffee orders.  

While most people have a typical Saturday routine, Mrs. Lozier’s Saturday is anything but routine. She usually finds herself being busy, as it changes often. In the mornings, she tends to clean her house, and takes the afternoon to spend time with her family. If time permits, she likes to go shopping with her daughters and hang out with them. 

Like a lot of people, Lozier likes to listen to music, and her favorite genre of music is country. While she does not have a favorite country music artist, some of the ones that she likes are the Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain. She did grow up in the ‘90s so those are the ones that she would go see in concert if she could. 

Lozier puts students at ease and answers any questions they may have for her to the best of her abilities, despite what other activities may be on her schedule. Stop by and thank her for all of the hard work that she does.
