Mrs. Ann Conner

What is your educational background?

I graduated with Honors from Bloomfield HS in 1999. Originally, I went to Purdue University for Landscape Horticulture and Design.  I ended up getting my CDA ( Child Development Accreditation) from the State of Indiana after deciding to work with children. 

What is your job, or what classes do you teach?

I am currently a teacher's aide where I get to help all the Jr. and Sr. High School staff when they need someone to cover their class. I am the AEP Supervisor for the alternative program.  I am currently the choreographer for Bloomfield Strut 'n' Fret and assist with the choirs.  I am also the Ballroom Dance Coach. 

Tell us about your family.

I am a mom of 5.  I have two current children in school; daughter in 7th and a son in kindergarten.  I have 3 older step-children who have already graduated and are off in the real world.  A son in New York, working on communications, a daughter who just graduated from Ball State now headed to medical school, and a daughter at ISU who is studying Arabic and in ROTC in hopes to go in to Military Intelligence.

What are your interests outside of school?

Sleeping. No really, spending time with my family.  I love reading, writing poetry, and drawing.  I am a pitcher for softball.  I am an amazing bowler.  I enjoy working out with friends and staying healthy.  Spend a lot of time outdoors, camping and fishing with my family.  I am a karaoke fool!  My favorite holiday is Halloween when we stay up all hours to watch scary movies. 

What profession, other than your own, would you most like to attempt?

I would like to go back to school and work on furthering my education in Business Administration and Adolescent Counseling.  I would love to take my Heart Beat Dance Company to a higher level and have my own studio to teach Ballroom and a variety of dance aerobics.

What is your favorite quote?

"The Difference between school and life?  In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.    In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson." - Tom Bodett

If you were to give one piece of advice to our students, what would it be?

Never miss a moment to make someone else's life a little better.  Actions matter, words can hurt, and just know there is so much more life after high school.
