Hello, and welcome to a new school year! My name is Brandi Schwartz, and I serve as the Reading Interventionist at Lawson Elementary. This will be my twelfth year of teaching and my fifth here at Lawson. I spent my first four years at Lawson as a 5th grade teacher before moving to my current position. I began my teaching career at Our Lady of the Snows School in Marys Home teaching 3rd grade. I then spent six years teaching 4th grade at California Elementary School. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Elementary Administration. I live in Jefferson City with my husband, Doug, and our two children. Our daughter, Ellie, is seven years old and our son, William, is 2 years old. I love to read, spend time outside, and spend time with my family.
