My name is Nancy Baron and I am a fourth grade teacher at Lawrence Woodmere Academy. What attracts me most as a teacher at LWA is the camaraderie amongst the students, faculty, and administration. In part, the favorable student-to teacher ratio encourages this dynamic, as well as the numerous workshops and assemblies that bring the school community together. I have noticed that the philosophy of the school encourages self-exploration and individual excellence. One of my favorite annual events at LWA is International Day; a six week course of study of a country. It incorporates every concept of creative expression and academic learning. I can`t say enough about this great school.
