Leah Lawson



Being a teacher is my innate talent and passion! I am happy to be back in Northern Michigan and at Glen Lake Community School. I am a PROUD mother of an exceptional, intelligent, and athletically gifted teenage son who has also joined the Glen Lake Family!
I have been teaching for over ten years in the Kalamazoo area as an Art Instructor and a Teaching Artist. As a teaching artist, I worked with the area schools to incorporate art learning with the common core subjects. Last year I had the pleasure of teaching for Blackbird Arts of Traverse City as a Teaching Artist. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University with honors in Art Education with a minor in Psychology and will be returning to earn my Master’s degree next year focused on instructional strategies. My experience in education continues to grow as I will also be designing a Math Enrichment program for Elementary which will include Art! I look forward to expanding my endeavors and am ecstatic to guide and challenge the students of Glen Lake ensuring their success and expanding possibilities!
