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.
