Vanessa Lawson

Hi, my name is Vanessa Lawson. I am a Collaborative Teacher. I have been teaching in Huntsville City School since February 2019. I grew up in Mobile, Alabama, in January 2019 the love of my family drew me to Huntsville. I enjoy walking, cooking, looking at model homes, traveling, and spending time with my family.

I will create an environment that fosters the importance of learning and a strong work ethic. I believe that children are a gift and possess diverse talents and capabilities. I consider it a privilege to help facilitate their learning and academic growth. I believe each student learns in their own way and style. I strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment where each student can have the opportunity to experience success and progress. It is my goal to help encourage my students to look beyond the four walls of our classroom and view the world around them as a place of learning and discovery. By doing this, I hope to instill in them a desire to become lifelong learners.
