Melanie Lawhorn,

When asked about her philosophy of education, Ms. Lawhorn said the following: "my teaching philosophy is very simple: love your students first.  The rest of everything that you have to give to them will come after that."

Ms. Lane says this about her students, "I look at each child as a gift and I strive to make a connection with every one of them I believe that a student's emotional and social well-being being is so important because without it they can't focus on learning".
