Mrs. Armsworthy’s Class
About Mrs. Armsworthy
NAME: Betty Lynn Armsworthy
WHAT YOU TEACH: 6th Grade Religion & 4th/ 6th Grade Math classes
HOMETOWN: Leonardtown, MD
EDUCATION: alum of FAW in the sixties (do the math); graduated from St. Mary’s Academy, and received B.S. in Education from Towson State College (now Towson State University); post graduate courses at College of Notre Dame of Md. and University of Maryland
FAVORITE OUTSIDE-OF-WORK ACTIVITY: Family & friends play an important part in my “free time. I’m very proud of my “other” titles of wife, mom, and grandmother. I love spending time with my six grandchildren – babysitting, and watching their many sporting events. Singing and playing the piano are also some of my favorite hobbies.
FAVORITE CHILDREN’S BOOK: Johnny Tremain and A Wrinkle In Time; The Giving Tree and The Velveteen Rabbit are close “seconds”
FAVORITE SAINT: St. Anthony. My mom taught me a short prayer to him, when I was little, and I have kept up the devotion ever since. (The older I get, the more I seem to depend on him.)
FAVORITE MOMENT AT FAW: Our 8th grade graduations are always so meaningful. Tears are shed, but it’s also a time of hope, joy, and excitement for what’s ahead!
QUALITIES YOUR FAVORITE TEACHER POSSESSED: “Firm” but kind and expected you to do your BEST at all times. She was fun-loving, and always got to know each student individually. She went the extra mile, but never lost her sense of humor.
WHY I LOVE TEACHING AT FAW: That’s easy…although much has changed at FAW since I attended, the dedication, commitment, and call to service of its members has remained constant. We are a FAMILY, helping each other on our journey in Faith. What could be better than that?
