Hello everyone! My name is Miss Lyon. I am excited and honored to be teaching the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade cross cat class here at Summit Academy. I have always known in my heart that I wanted to be a teacher. I received my B.A. in Education from Anderson University in Indiana and started teaching shortly after as a 6th grade Math and Social Studies teacher. Although I currently teach 4th through 6th grade here at Summit Academy Akron Elementary, I have learned to teach grades 1-12 from different experiences over the years. I enjoy teaching small groups of students because it allows me to get to know each student personally. Each student is unique and I believe that every one needs individual attention.
During my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, sewing and traveling to different and exciting places to scuba dive and snorkel. My adorable cats Bella and Lady are very important to me, along with a tank full of fish. I also enjoy spending time with my Dad and sister.
My goal for my students every year is to prepare them for middle school and help mold them into successful adults. I am looking forward to the new and exciting experiences we will have in the 2015-2016 school year.
