A little about ME!

Lara McClendon
BS in Elementary Education from LSU (Geaux Tigers!)
MA in Educational Leadership from UAB
National Board Certified in Early and Middle Childhood Art

I began teaching in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I taught 2nd Grade for two years.
I moved home to Alabama and my family farm in Springville.
I taught 1st grade for three years at Springville Elementary School and then created an art program at Springville Elementary, where I taught Art for five years.

I am SO excited to be here at Margaret Elementary, where we are creating new traditions and a new family.

I still live on my family homestead with my daughter, horses, cats and our silly dog. We love to travel, and usually camp and take our Jeep on adventures. We are both certified SCUBA divers, so our latest adventures are taking us to the oceans.

This year we are going to create the National Parks in our school during the Spring, I hope it will be even better than the Ocean!!
