My name is Stephanie Lawrence and I am beginning my 12th year at Lackland Elementary (20th year overall). I am originally from a small east Texas town called Cleveland where I attended school from 1st grade to 12th grade. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin in 1991 and then received my Texas Teaching Certification from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas two years later. I enjoy teaching at Lackland because I love working with and learning about the life of military kids (since I wasn't a military kid myself). I live with my husband, Dallas, and even though we don't have kids, we have a cat, Thumper, that we treat like one. In my spare time, I enjoy reading mysteries, traveling, and watching football (especially Longhorn and pro football). I am looking forward to working with my new third graders in both my class and Mrs. Boyd's class this school year!
