In The Patriot Spotlight: Tami Sayers

November 06, 2017

Each week a Clarkson High School student or Clarkson Public Schools staff member will be randomly selected to be "In the Patriot Spotlight."  This week's Patriot is Mrs. Tami Sayers. Tami’s parents are Duane and Pat Johnson. She has been with Eddy for 11 years and married for 5. They have two kids: Gunnar (2 years old) and Oakley (2 months old).

Tami went to Northeast Community College for two years, and then she went to Wayne State for two more. Later she got her Master’s Degree through Wayne State. Her favorite part of college was meeting new people. She liked meeting people that had the same interests she had. She said she is still friends with some of them today! She didn’t play any sports in college, but she did do choir for two years.  Tami worked at Columbus Public Schools at Centennial Elementary where she taught second grade for six years before returning to her hometown of Clarkson..

Tami played volleyball and basketball all through high school. Her favorite high school sport to watch is volleyball because she loves watching the girls play the net. Her favorite is when someone kills the ball or has a big block! She said, “I have never been able to do that, so it’s amazing to me how some girls have so much power on the court.”

Tami’s family tradition is to spend the holidays with their family. Since they are both from Clarkson, they make it to all of their holiday celebrations on both sides of their family. When they have two in one day, they run from one to the other to be with everyone. She says it makes her holidays full of family and by the end of the day they are miserable from eating so much good food. Every year she and her family go to Big Bang Boom in Norfolk for the 4th of July. Her family values that tradition, and she wants to share it with her kids.
