Mrs. Lawson 

 Welcome to the Pre-K & Kindergarten Classroom!

My name is Melanie Lawson and I look forward to a great year with your children. 

As a small town farm girl I attended Gem State Academy in Caldwell, Idaho where I graduated and met my husband.  I then attended Walla Walla University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction.  In addition, I hold endorsements in Special Education and Religion, and am state and denominationally certified.

I have taught for 18 years, five of which have been at Boise Valley Adventist School.  When I’m not teaching I enjoy nature, camping, puzzles, reading, geocaching, and spending time with my family. 

 

In my classroom:

  • I believe God should be the center of our class
  • I believe learning is a lifelong adventure
  • I believe in facing each day with minds open to knowledge and hearts open to love
  • I believe in the freedom to wonder, to ask, to explore, and to create
  • I believe success means doing our best, being our best, and feeling proud of our efforts
  • I believe every child has special talents
  • I believe in the God given value of each child

 

Educational fieldtrips, creative art activities, developing friendships with our 'big buddies', and worshipping God through praise music are just a few of the highlights in our class.   

 

God's presence and blessings are apparent in our school and I look forward to another great year working in His mission field.
