Info about Mrs. LawsonEducational background
I graduated in 1990 with my bachelor's degree from Texas Womans University. I taught third grade two years at Era ISD. Then I was hired by Mary Moore to teach fifth grade at J.M. Lindsay. The following year I started teaching fourth grade. While Gainesville ISD was building W.E. Chalmers Elementary, the 3rd and 4th grades were divided between J.M. Lindsay and McMurray. I was moved to McMurray as a fourth grade teacher. Finally in 2000, Chalmers was finished and we moved out here where I taught 4th grade one year. The following year I began teaching third grade.
I earned my master's degree in Library Science from the University of North Texas in 2006 and Mrs. Mercer hired me to be the librarian here starting in 2006/2007. I love being in the library and working with all the students. I try to instill a love of reading and books with all the students. The trick is to find the perfect book for each child. I also teach library skills and research skills to all the students.
