Do You Remember Mrs. Siers?

Malinda Siers
Director of Faculty and Curriculum Development

How long have you been a part of the SUA community?
I have been part of the SUA community for 20 years.

What is your position at/affiliation to SUA?
Director of Faculty and Curriculum Development, Director of the Junior Academy Program, Mathematics Teacher

What are you most proud of being affiliated with SUA?
I feel blessed to contribute to the “feeling” one experiences as one enters SUA—a sense of community and belonging. I am proud of the relationships I built with students over the past 20 years; I have strived to encourage, empower, and celebrate the unique gifts and talents of our SUA Arrows.

What SUA core value is most important to you and why?
The Ursuline core value, Development of the Whole Person, resonates with me the most. Integral to each young woman’s education is not only academics, but more importantly, their emotional, social, and spiritual growth. As Rita Pierson said, “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can be.” I hope to be that champion for our young ladies.

How she has impacted her students...
"I met Mrs. Siers when I was in the Junior Academy and needed help in Math. She was so patient explaining concepts that I became confident and successful in the subject. Throughout my time in high school, Mrs. Siers made herself available to answer questions and give sound advice, when I needed it. After she moved from teaching into administration, Mrs. Siers kept an 'open-door' policy, so I felt like she still had a listening ear for students."
