The person who nominated Mrs. Lyon wrote: “Scarlett Lyon teaches ALL of the math classes at Early College East High School. Even as she covers a teacher vacancy and doesn’t have planning time, she still takes the time to make her students feel connected, supported, and enriched. Scarlett is readily available to both her students and their families. She goes above and beyond everyday, answering math questions and proving support with content not even related to current lessons. Her students have a sense of confidence and accomplishment in her room. She challenges yet supports them, and her student show amazing growth under her leadership and care. Scarlett is SO deserving of this recognition! She has fostered my son’s enthusiasm and desire to learn above and beyond what is expected in her classes. She has instilled a love of math my son didn’t realize he had.”
Congratulations Mrs. Lyon!
