Mrs. Kara Lawrence

Heritage Students + Families, 

My name is Kara Lawrence and I am a part of the amazing fifth-grade team here at Heritage. I attended college locally at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) where I received my degree in Elementary Education. As an avid life-long learner I am currently working towards getting my master's degree in Instructional Leadership. My educational philosophy is that all children can be successful when given the right tools and environment to thrive. Therefore, cultivating meaningful relationships with my students is a priority. My hope as a teacher is to make school an engaging and memorable place for students.

Beyond school, I am an avid dog enthusiast and have two dogs Charlie + Kidd. I am married to my husband Ben who is a civil/environmental engineer. I also love to travel, read books, watch movies, and try new foods. My favorite book is Ender's Game and I never say no to burritos. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with others.
