New Haven High School is proud to introduce our new secretary, Mrs. Mandy Seitter. Mrs. Seitter is actually from New Haven and even a New Haven High School alumna.
She graduated in 1998 before going to Truman State University. Later Mrs. Seitter transferred to University of Central Missouri. She graduated from there with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Technology with an emphasis in Animal Technology.
Afterward she went to Maple Woods Community College in north Kansas City and graduated with an Associate’s degree in Veterinary Technology. Mrs. Mandy Seitter is actually a registered veterinary technician!
When asked what she did before becoming the high school secretary, Mrs. Seitter said, “My last job was with Edward Jones. I worked from home as a Cash Service Specialist. Prior to that, I was the practice manager and head veterinary technician at a veterinary clinic in Chesterfield.”
Mrs. Seitter is very excited to begin her new job as secretary. She is, “looking forward to getting to know the students. [She] feels bad when a student comes into the office and [she doesn’t] know their name! So [she is] looking forward to getting to know everyone!”
Although, Mrs. Seitter isn’t all work. She is a wife and mother of four kids: Abby, Lucas, Brinley, and Maizie.
In a recent questionnaire, Mrs. Seitter was asked what sort of hobbies she has. She answered, “I love animals! I also love crafting and have a small obsession with mason jars.”
When Mrs. Seitter was asked about her family, she included her family’s various pets. She said, “[They] have a dog named Cowgirl, three chickens, and horses (but [they] share those with [her] parents)!”
Just like many of us, Mrs. Seitter had family pets growing up. When asked what sorts of pets she had, she stated, “For as long as I can remember we have always had dogs and horses! When I was growing up, I was also involved in 4-H so sometimes we had hogs that I considered a pet.”
Later, I asked her what animal from around the world she would want to see or have as a pet if she could. Mrs. Seitter responded, “Oh my, I don't know if I could pick just one! I would love to go to the Australian Zoo someday and see the koalas, along with everything else.”
On a more serious note, Mrs. Seitter was asked what she would change in the world if she could. She stated, “I wish people of all ages would remember to think before they speak and try to be understanding.”
Furthermore, she was asked what advice she would give to the younger generations. Mrs. Seitter would advise them to “just be kind. Kindness goes a long way, even if the person may not be your favorite for whatever reason, you being kind to them that very day at that very time could be what they need in their life.”
As you can tell, Mrs. Seitter is an extraordinary addition to New Haven High. I am sure she will feel right at home. We are all happy to have you, Mrs. Seitter!
