Single mom hopes to finish school

Posted

Molly LePori, 23, lives in Copperas Cove and works at Precision Urgent Care.

Where are you from originally and how did you get to Cove?

I am from Austin. My fiancé lived here in Cove so I moved here to be with him and his children.

What do you enjoy about living and working in Copperas Cove?

I love that it is a big enough town where you don’t run into the same people everyday. I can get from one end of town to the other in 15 minutes.

What do you do at Precision Urgent Care?

I am one of the front desk receptionists. I answer the phones and I do lots of clerical work.

Tell me about your family.

I have two stepchildren, Baylee, 6, and Camron, 4, and one biological child, Charlie, 5.

If you could change anything in your life what would it be?

I would go back to school earlier. It is hard being a single parent and trying to go back to school. I hope that I can finish school this time and soon. My long-term goal is to peruse my degree in education.

Were do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself in charge of an elementary school or middle school. My long-term goal is to one day become a school principal.

Who is your mentor?

My grandmother. She will be 78 years old in three weeks. My mother and I lived with her off and on while I was growing up. In 2008, I moved back in with my grandmother. She is an all-around good person and very knowledgeable about the ways of the world; however, she is not that good in math. I enjoy learning other things from her.

What was the best advice you were ever given?

My grandfather always told me to smile because everyone will think you’re having fun.
