Special Education - Leah LaVanture



I was hired at Glen Lake in 2008 as the elementary, k-5 special education teacher. Words cannot express how excited I was to teach at my childhood school and be part of the Laker Family again. I earned a Master’s of Arts in Education from the University of Phoenix with endorsements for learning disabilities and early childhood education. I am very grateful and fortunate to be able to work with such an amazing Laker Family!

My family and I live in the Long Lake area. I enjoy the beautiful drive to work each day. Our family time includes camping, bonfires, beach time and good old laughter. My favorite quote: “The true measure of success in life isn’t money, fame or power; it’s laugh lines.”
