“I’ve always loved visiting and learning about colleges,” College and Career Adviser Barb Takahashi said.
After volunteering at Lynbrook as a parent of three Lynbrook students, Takahashi became one of Lynbrook’s College and Career Center Advisers in 2014. During her time at Lynbrook, Takahashi often adjusted the workshops and resources she offered to better fit students’ evolving college application and career needs. Takahashi feels that the most rewarding part of her job when when students thank her for helping them get accepted to colleges.
Takahashi decided to retire so she could spend more time with her granddaughter. She plans to visit Italy as a group leader for the Lynbrook Italy tour as her last project for the school, then travel the world and spend more time outdoors hiking during her retirement. From her 17 years at Lynbrook, Takahashi appreciates how supportive the Lynbrook community is.
“It’s home for me,” Takahashi said. “I love it, I will always think of it as home. I’m sure I will return for visits.”
