I'm Ms. Lyons, a 2nd year English teacher here at Eisenhower! I graduated in the top 3% of my class in May of 2020 from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.
I believe that each student that enters my room (virtually or in-person) are unique, talented, and intelligent individuals. I strive as an educator to help students realize their potential and worth, while opening their eyes to critically interpret and view the world around them.
Besides teaching, I enjoy playing video games, I practice yoga daily, I love to cook, and I love creating art. Some games I've been playing recently include Apex, Overwatch, and Death's Door. My favorite cuisine is Mexican food, and the art medium I've been loving lately is gouache!
I have two kittens, Lux and Noctis. I live with my partner of 8 years, Joseph, who works at Ameren as an Electrical Engineer.
