Welcome to Kindergarten!
Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. Elementary Education Masters Curriculum and Instruction
My name is Karyl Lawrence and I am so excited that I will be your child's teacher for the 2019/2020 school year. This will be my 4th year teaching kindergarten at Running Creek Elementary. My undergraduate degree was in Elementary Education at Regis University. I also received my Masters degree at Grand Canyon University in Curriculum and Instruction. I believe that the parent/teacher relationship is so important in creating a successful year for your child. I look forward to working with you!
I have lived in Elizabeth for 26 years. My husband, Matt, and I have four boys (4th grade, 7th grade, Sophmore, and Senior) that attend Elizabeth Schools. We love to camp, watch our boys play football and baseball, and vacation with our friends and family.
Kindergarten is such a fun year of learning new things and growing socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. We will learn about letters, numbers, read stories, learn to share with our friends, play a lot, create, imagine, build, make mistakes and celebrate. I encourage parent involvement to make it the best year!
Running Creek Elementary is a PBIS school. As a school we focus on ROAR (Respect, Own it, Act Safely, Responsible). In our classroom, we will discuss this and use this language daily. We will discuss what ROAR behavior looks like and sounds like. Our classroom will include a fun and safe learning environment where everyone feels welcome!
I am looking forward to this year getting to know you and your student.
