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 fourteenth year of teaching and my seventh 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 am currently working towards earning a Masters Degree in Reading Instruction. I live in Jefferson City with my husband, Doug, and our two children. Our daughter, Ellie, is nine years old and our son, William, is four years old. We also have an aussiedoodle named Bailey. I love to read, spend time outside, and spend time with my family.
