Wanda Lyons

Hello!  This is my first year teaching at East Clayton Elementary and I love the parental involvement!  It has been amazing seeing first hand the community support at this school, and how everyone is so welcoming.  I grew up in (Motown) Detroit, Michigan, one of my heart strings is with Detroit, the music, food, culture, but my heart is not with the cold.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from Upper Iowa University through a full scholarship program.  I later moved to Memphis, Tennessee where I completed my Master of Science Degree in Education from the University of Memphis. I taught school with Memphis City Schools for sixteen years.   I later relocated to North Carolina in 2017, as I have relatives in Cary, Greensboro, Tabor City, Parkton, Fayetteville, and Whiteville, N.C. and wanted to be more near family.  Some of the places I have traveled are: France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Dominican Republic, Barbados, Netherlands, and Mexico.  I enjoy learning about other cultures.  I have a son, Eugene who is a honor graduate from Middle Tennessee State University, and is now an Industrial Systems Engineer.  I love teaching and I believe effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. My hobbies are:  Walking, painting, diy projects, cooking( I can cook Chinese and French food) reading, horseback riding and just having a relaxing time.  

  • I hope everyone has a safe and fun summer!
