Alumni Spotlight: Lyndsie Guy

October 30, 2013

Alumni Profile3
Name: Lyndsie Guy
Current Position: National Teaching Fellow for Citizen Schools, New York City
Where I Served: City Year Baton Rouge, Capitol Middle School, 2012-2013

Why did you join City Year? I joined City Year because I was intrigued by the concept of national service that wasn’t militant in nature. I had a friend who served with City Year Seattle, and he urged me to apply. I completed my year because every challenge taught me a valuable lesson about myself.

What is your favorite thing about your current role and how has serving with CYBR contributed to it? I love building relationships with my seventh grade students, which is a practice that I pulled directly from my time serving with City Year. Prior to City Year, I had limited interaction with middle schoolers. Now I see them all day, every day! There is (honestly) never a dull moment.
If you were a City Year uniform piece, what would you be and why? Easy: I would be the handbook. Need some info? I’d be happy to let you know what’s up.
Do you have any advice for corps members? Stick it out. You’ll be glad you did.
What was the most valuable lesson you learned during your time at City Year? Defeat is only a state of mind.

    I would like to add a personal note about this woman: She is as every bit as intelligent and persistent and kind as she is beautiful! Any student / administrator would be lucky to have her as a teacher/support/leader!
