Hello my name is Ms. Jennifer Lyons. I have been teaching in Union City since 2002. I taught in Sara M. Gilmore School from 2002 to 2012. I have been teaching in Colin Powell Elementary School since September 2012. I have a B.A. in History and a M.A. in Urban Education with a concentration in English as a Second Language. I look forward to working with my students on a daily basis to help them develop a love for learning.
Read Across America will be held March 1-5, 2021. Next week the students will have a Dr. Seuss Spirit Week. I am encouraging all students to participate in each day on Zoom. No need to buy things. Please find things that are already at home. Be creative!
