Pam Goss, a respected teacher here at Locust Fork, was born on April
25, 1965. She attended
school at Susan Moore High School and participated in activities such
as track, basketball, band, and was even the president of the drama
club. In the band, Mrs. Goss played a variety of brass instruments,
including the trumpet, the baritone, and the tuba. She also made an
attempt at playing the trombone, which, in the end, got the better
of her. Her favorite thing about high school was being involved
in the drama club performing dialogues. She graduated from Susan Moore
in 1983. After high school, Mrs. Goss attended University of Alabama.
While there, she changed majors
many times. Her most memorable college moment was when they won the
Flag Football Championship and had the privilege of going on a no expense,
four day trip to New Orleans. When all was said and done, Mrs. Goss
came out with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education, and
a major in geography and biology.
One of Mrs. Goss’s most memorable moments was when she was saved
at fifteen. Her other was the birth of her children, Meg, 15, who takes
part in Scholar’s Bowl and track, and Jessica, 13 who plays on
the Junior Varsity Basketball Team. In her spare time, Mrs. Goss like
to spend time with her girls and
her husband, Bobby, doing activities such as riding 4-wheelers and
going camping. Her favorite Disney movie is “Cinderella” and
she also enjoys watching “Lord of the Rings”.
Before coming to Locust Fork, Mrs. Goss taught for two years at Central
in Tuscaloosa. She has been with us for ten years now, and she has
taught almost everything including history, girl’s athletics,
computer, and, as many of you know, every type of science known to
man. Mrs. Goss feels that Locust Fork “has the best student body,
faculty, and administration than anywhere [she] has ever been around”.
Although she loves our school, she is aggravated by some of the negativity
certain student’s show. “If you’re a student at LF,
take pride and strive to make it a better place”.
