Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lawler

Relocating from Wilmington, Delaware, Hudson City Schools has been my work home since 1996. My early years in the middle school encompassed 6th, 7th, and/or 8th grade, Language Arts and Math. Since 2002, teaching 8th graders how to be critical readers, writers and thinkers via Language Arts has been my professional mission. I switched to American History in 2015-2016 and have loved combining all the reading and writing skills with America's amazing history.
 
I earned National Board Certification (ELA Early Adolescence) in 2005, after an intense year of videotaping, analyzing,  and passing standardized tests. This performance-based, multiple-measure, peer-reviewed dissertation is the highest certification in the teaching profession. The NCBT status expires after 10 years, so I repeated the process and was recertified in 2015.
 
My Masters in Education, in 1998 from Kent State University, focused on Curriculum and Instruction in the Middle Grades.
 
When I graduated from the University of Delaware in 1992, I had earned my Elementary Education (1-8) certification and my Special Education (K-12) certification. I taught in 4th grade for one year, and 6th grade for three years in Wilmington, Delaware.
 
The personal commitment to a team and personal improvement has been a passion since elementary school. Since returning to Ohio, I have coached Varsity Softball, Varsity Lacroose, Middle School Basketball, Middle School Lacrosse and even Middle School Volleyball. Coaching my own daughters in Kiwanis and MS Basketball, my son in Kiwanis Baseball and daughter in HS lacrosse has been a joy as well.
 
Loving ALL sports and the wonderful lessons being on a team can teach a student--I eagerly accepted the position of Middle School Athletic Director the summer of 2019. I can't wait to learn from our coaches and our athletes and find ways to serve all stakeholders!
