• Welcome!  My name is Robin Lawrence.  I am currently teaching fifth grade math.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Stephen F. Austin.  I am also certified in Gifted and Talented.  In February I completed my 45th year of teaching, 24 of which were in Special Education.  I have been at Greentree Elementary for 32 years. 
    My husband and I celebrated our 44th year of marriage in June.  We are blessed to have 4 wonderful and successful children.  Our oldest daughter, Shannon, is a pediatrician in San Antonio, and has 2 handsome boys.  Our second daughter, Allison, is a financial analyst at Hewlett Packard and lives in Kingwood.  She has 2 beautiful twin girls that I enjoy caring for after school.  Our third daughter, Catherine, is a health science/medical terminology teacher at Klein Oak High School. Finally there's Bryan, who married his sweetheart since 7th grade in March 2016. They live in Lockhart. He is a project manager for Vaughn Construction.
    My philosophy in teaching is that children learn best in a fun-loving, safe environment where they are actively engaged in their learning.  I have high academic and behavioral expectations, and a very loving heart.  I teach because I love to see the excitement when a child learns! I love being the one to help them with their struggles.  I learn so much from my students, and I'm blessed every day in some way.
    I am looking forward to working with you and your child to make this year fun and successful.
