I was born in New York but spent most of my childhood here in Cary.  I attended Davis Drive Elementary when I was a child!  I graduated from Elon University with a degree in Elementary Education.  I moved back to Raleigh where I live with my goldendoodle, Marley.  This will be my third year teaching kindergarten at Davis Drive Elementary and I absolutely love it!

I grew up in Raleigh and attended Wake County public Schools. I went to John Brown University in Arkansas, where I studied Elementary Education and ESL. After teaching in Randolph County, NC for two years, I moved to Kampala, Uganda and taught Kindergarten at an international school for 3 years! In summer 2018, I moved back to NC and joined the Davis Drive family!

I am passionate about learning and trying new things and I love to share that passion with my students! I strive to create a family atmosphere in my classroom where each student is celebrated. I look forward to a great year in Kindergarten!

When I am not teaching, I enjoy being outside, trying new foods and experiences, and visiting friends all over the country and the world! I am so excited to get to know you and your child!

My name is Sandra Lawson. I am a graduate of North Carolina Central University. I am married and have two sons, Jordan and Justin. I love traveling, shopping and spending time with my family. I love the Carolina Panthers and the Baltimore Ravens. I love teaching kindergarten at Davis Drive. It gives me great joy to instill a love of learning with each child that enters my classroom.  I always hope when a student leaves my room, they will remember a special part of  their kindergarten experience.
