  • “Ms. Lawrence still is one of my all-time favorite teachers. She not only taught me important science concepts, but also left a lasting impact on my life. Ms. Lawrence comes to school every day with a bright smile and attitude ready to conquer any task presented. Ms. Lawrence does an amazing job of keeping the class on task and keeping kids’ behaviors in line while keeping her students engaged in learning. I will always remember how she would tell us to stop engaging in “foolishness” and it still makes me die laughing whenever I think about it. Ms. Lawrence does an amazing job of keeping rambunctious middle schoolers in line with her jovial personality, but more importantly with a firm mutual agreement of respect in the classroom.”
