Congratulations to the Lorena Middle School Teacher of the Month for February - Mrs. Deborah Peevey!




Mrs. Peevey has been nominated and selected as Lorena Middle School's February Teacher of the Month.  Mrs. Peevey teaches Theater 1 and Theater 2 as well as 6th grade Character Education at Lorena Middle School.  She also directs the UIL One Act Play for LMS.  This is her 3rd year at Lorena Middle School.  

Below are portions of the nomination letters Mrs. Peevey received:

Mrs. Peevey gives her all to everything she does.  She has very high expectations for herself and for her students.  Lorena Middle School is fortunate to have such hard working educators dedicated to excellence.  Most recently, Mrs. Peevey has been instrumental in the Leopards Lending Hands project.  She has organized a trip to area nursing homes as a service project.  Every LMS student and many parents have helped contribute to this project.  We have hundreds of fleece lap blankets and all tutorial classes have been creating personal Valentines Cards.  On February 12th, all 7th and 8th graders will deliver Valentines Cards and Fleece Lap Blankets to the residents.  What a great lesson for our students to learn - giving back to our community.  I'm sure this project will touch the hearts of many nursing home residents.  In turn our students will have a chance to participate in a great volunteer opportunity.  Kuddos to Mrs. Peevey for taking on this project in addition to her other responsibilities.

Congratulations to the Lorena Middle School Teacher of the Month for December 
Mrs. Tonya Cargill!


Mrs. Cargill has been nominated and selected as Lorena Middle School's December Teacher of the Month.  Mrs. Cargill teaches 6th grade Reading  at Lorena Middle School.   This is her 19th year in education and her 10th year at the middle school campus.   

Below are portions of the nomination letters Mrs. Cargill received:

Mrs. Cargill should be teacher of the month because she makes her lessons more interactive for the kids.  She brings the lessons to life when I am in her class.  When she dresses up she makes sure you know that it isn't all fun and games; that it is a regular learning day.  When you have trouble with a question or something, she doesn't explain and give you the answer right then and there, she gives you little hints and encourages you to find the answer yourself.  I think Mrs. Cargill is a Wonderful teacher.

Mrs. Cargill creates an alternate universe - it's like you are really IN what you are learning. She dresses up and really gets excited about her lessons and that makes me want to be there. Plus we are reading a book that no one else is getting to read! I wish I could be in her class all day.

Welcome to LMS

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