Hello and welcome to 3rd grade! I am Mrs. Lawrence and this is my eighth year being a part of this amazing school. I have worked in various positions at Coyote Creek and by far third grade has been my favourite! Before I meet all of you, here is a little bit about me!
I attained my Masters Degree in Early Education with an emphasis in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I have been teaching for 10 years and have taught in Pre-K, Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 3rd grade!
I grew up in Canada with my parents and two older sisters. In 1996 my father's job brought us to Colorado and I have been living here since. My husband and I live in Highlands Ranch and we just had our first baby, a boy, in May! We are also parents to our adorable 3 year old pup, Pyper! We love to travel and visit my family in Canada. My husband, Garvin, is from the Caribbean island, St. Lucia, so we enjoy taking trips to the sunny island to see his family as well! I absolutely love being a mommy and can’t spend enough time with my new baby, Soul! I also enjoy cooking and baking, camping, knitting, and spending time outdoors.
Third grade is a year full of growth and new discoveries and there is so much I am looking forward to this year. I can't wait to get to know all of you!

Hello! I am so excited to be teaching third grade at Coyote Creek Elementary School! I wanted to share a little bit about myself before starting this journey together.
I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and an emphasis in teaching English as a second language. From there, I continued my education in Early Childhood Education through Arapahoe Community College and Metropolitan State University of Denver. I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my fifteenth year of teaching, and my fifth here at Coyote Creek!
I have been married to my wonderful husband Jared for eight years, and we have three beautiful children! My boys are 4 and 2, and we just welcomed our baby girl in May. We also have five adorable “fur” babies at home! In my spare time I own a photography business, and I like to dabble in scrapbooking, traveling, hiking, and of course spending time with my amazing family. I am a Colorado native; and I have always loved learning and discovering more about our wonderful state!
This year is going to be filled with exciting opportunities to become passionate and engaged learners, while also growing as individuals socially and emotionally. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you throughout the year, and to work as a team to have the best possible year in third grade!

Welcome to 3rd Grade! I am looking forward to an amazing school year with your child at Coyote Creek Elementary!
I have been teaching in Douglas County since 2005. I’ve been fortunate to teach second grade through fifth grade in Parker, Colorado.
I am originally from Illinois. My husband and I have a beautiful daughter and two sweet and spicy dogs. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, going to the movies, reading, learning, and most of all, spending time with my family.
I am looking forward to getting to know your child, share in their interests, and find what works best for their learning. Your child and I will work together to continue their academic journey, and build upon their strengths. My overall goal is to nurture their love of learning and support them as they continue their growth in exploration, risk-taking, self-efficacy, and self-advocacy.
Again, I couldn’t be more excited to be your child’s teacher this year, and I am looking forward to working with you and your child! I am confident we are going to have a magical year full of discovery, learning, and growth!
