1. Who is this lady teaching my child?
My name is Shawna Lyons. This is my 14th year of teaching. I have taught at Daves Creek for the past 12 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I love watching my students grow and learn through out the year.
2. How do I spend my time outside of school?
I enjoy spending time with my family. Bruce, Ryan, Ansley and I like to travel. In fact this summer we took many trips. Some of the places we visited were: Cambridge, Cape San Blas, LaFollette, Nashville, and Charlotte.
When we are not traveling, I like to bake, scrapbook, read, and attend sporting events. I can often be found cheering on the Braves, Thrashers, Hawks, and Clemson. Ryan and Ansley are invovled in music and dance, so I cheer them on also.
