Miss Christine Lazo » WELCOME!

WELCOME!

Hello,

My name is Christine Lazo and I will be your child’s 5th Grade teacher this school year. This will be my second year teaching at St. Thomas More, but my seventh year working at STM. I am happy to say I am a proud alumna of STM and love that I get the chance to teach back where it all started for me. Go Falcons! Upon graduating from St. Thomas More I went on to attend Ramona Convent Secondary School where I received my High School Diploma. Later, I would go on to receive my Bachelors of Arts in Child Development with an emphasis in Multiple-Subject Teaching from California State University, Los Angeles. I now feel I am prepared to take my faith and my educational acumen and transition that into an ideal educator.

As an educator, I hope that I am able to not only teach your child but to also understand them and their individual needs. I want to make sure that they each get the attention and assistance they need in order for them to learn and perform to the best of their ability. I will also teach them the necessary skills and attitudes for them to take into junior high so they are able to build a strong foundation leading them into the high school of their choice. I would like to think I can do it alone, but I can’t. It is a group effort from God, the student, the parents, and myself, to work together to make your child a well-rounded student and individual. Together we can make the greatest impact on their lives especially at such a critical time in their development. I can’t wait to work with everyone, especially the students, to make this year a great one!

Thank You!
