The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS are the standards teachers are required to teach for each grade level and subject area.  The general TEKS can be found on the Texas Education Agency's (TEA) website (http://tea.texas.gov/curriculum/teks/).

If you are interested in more detailed information to support the TEKS, a great resource can be found on the TEKS Resource System (TEKS RS) (pictured here) To access the TEKS RS, Click on the TEKS Resource System in the drop down menu under "For Parents" on this web page.  

The TEKS RS provides details and specific information about standards by grade level and subject area.  All core subject areas are included for grade 3 through 12.  This is one of many resources available to parents and students in the Lorena ISD.   When teachers post objectives, they will be posting the TEKS # along with it as a point of reference.  The TEKS Clarification provides each standard and support details for a better understanding of expectations.

If you have any questions about accessing this resource, please contact Mrs. Jenny Glaser, the instructional specialist at Lorena Middle School.




Congratulations to January's Teacher of the Month - Sondra Moseley!


Mrs. Moseley, has been nominated and selected as Lorena Middle School's January Teacher of the Month.  Mrs. Moseley is a teacher's aide at Lorena Middle School.  This is her 1st year on the middle school campus.  However, Mrs. Moseley has been in Lorena ISD for 9 years.  

Below is a portion of the nomination letter Mrs. Moseley received:

Mrs. Moseley is fantastic with students.  She has a challenging job, but she always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude.  She not only supports students to whom she is assigned, but any student in need of assistance.  Mrs. Moseley also helps out wherever and whenever needed.  Recently, there was a difficult situation in which she went above and beyond.

Welcome to LMS

"Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving." Oliver Wendell Holmes
