Kasey Yancy Shares Love For Teaching With Her Siblings

It is not very often that all siblings in a family go into the same life-long career, but for Kasey Yancey, a math teacher at FHN, this is her reality with all of her siblings being teachers like herself. Yancey has two older siblings, 28-year-old Madison Stauseback and 26-year-old Samantha Yancey, who both decided to follow their passion and become teachers. Stauseback teaches in the St. Louis Public School District, while Samantha works in St. Charles.

“Madison teaches first [grade], and Samantha, she’s a case manager for kids with mental or physical health disabilities,” Kasey said. “So she’s not in a classroom, but she works with schools.”

When they were younger, their father was a teacher and they would frequently help set up his classroom, while their mother, Heather Martin, did coaching work. Despite the early exposure to the teaching lifestyle, they were never forced to become teachers themselves. They were encouraged to do whatever made them happy from their mother, and continued to be supported by her and by each other through their careers.

“Be there for them. Support them. Support them on the bad days,” Martin said. “It all really is about just supporting them.”

With all of them being teachers, theyoften discuss each others opinions when it comes to teaching, and can understand what each other have gone through when ithas been a tough day. Martin even believes that their jobs have brought them closer together and loves the fact that all of her children are teachers.

“It’s a good retirement, it’s a good career and we need good teachers,” Martin said. “It’s so important, especially in today’s world, that we have good, compassionate teachers out there.”
