Benita Albert brings us the story of a local family and focuses on Todd Livesay, a teacher. I am pleased to see his involvement in the Training and Technology program at Y-12 highlighted in the story. There are many more aspects to this local story that you will enjoy.   


Todd Livesay, a 1981 Oak Ridge High School graduate, has deep Oak Ridge roots. Born in Oak Ridge and attending Elm Grove (K-5), Glenwood (6th grade), Jefferson Junior High School (7-9) and ORHS (10-12), he has remained an Oak Ridge resident. Since 1999, he has worked for the Oak Ridge Schools as a teacher and educational innovator.

I knew Todd as my student in Algebra 1 during his sophomore year. He was an energetic teen with an outgoing personality and a well-established work ethic honed in his after-school jobs. Those traits are still very much a part of his persona. Interviewing him at ORHS recently, Todd was enthusiastic over his latest appointment, a 60% assignment at ORHS, where he is in the process of setting up a new advanced STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) lab/classroom. The room displayed creative student projects such as team-collaborative Rube Goldberg machines and wooden, in-construction trebuchets. I wanted to sign up!
