MEET THE ADULT SCHOOL STUDENTS
What’s your name and occupation?
Marianne Lloyd, Associate Professor of Psychology at Seton Hall University
Where do you live?
Which class(es) have you taken at the South Orange-Maplewood Adult School?
First Time Homebuyers
What’s one unexpected thing you learned in the class?
That there are special loans if you buy a fixer-upper. We didn’t go this route but it made looking at such options less intimidating.
What motivates you to keep learning?
In order to be an effective educator, it’s important for me to remember what it feels like to learn something for the first time.
What’s your favorite thing about living in Maplewood/South Orange?
The people. From the welcoming parishioners of St. Joseph’s Parish who have helped me to revitalize my faith, to the fellow new moms in Mothers & More who helped me to survive my first year of parenthood, to the women who meet up for 6am runs who have helped me stay in shape physically and mentally, every aspect of my life has been enriched by living here. I had no idea when I took a job at SHU that I was also starting a life in such a fine community.
