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 44th year of teaching, 24 of which were in Special Education.
My husband and I celebrated our 43rd 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 teacher at Klein Oak High School. Finally there's Bryan, who married his sweetheart since 7th grade in March 2016. They live in New Braunfels. He is an assistant superintendent for Vaughn Construction in San Marcos.
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.
