Mrs. Emily Lanier

I would like to welcome you and your child to our second grade sea of learners!  I am so excited about all the the things we will explore this year together!   We will have a great year!

About Me:

Hello!  My name is Emily Lanier and this will be my sixth year teaching second grade and, also, my fourth year at Benhaven Elementary School. I worked as an instructional assistant for 10 years before furthering my education.  I have taught 2nd grade for 2 years in Siler City and 3rd grade at Boone Trail Elementary School.

I attended Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) to obtain my Associate in Arts degree.  I returned to work for several years, before finally being able to complete my college journey at University of North Carolina at Fayetteville (FSU), to obtain my degree in Elementary Education.

I have been married to my husband for 37 years.  We have 4 children.  Our boys are Carson (Olivia) and Shane (Hannah); our girls are Emily (Jacob) and Harris (Colton).  We have 6 grands, Ben, Emma, CJ, Luke, Hudson and Clay.  Along with our children, we have 4 dogs and 2 cats!

It is amazing to see not only my children grow, but to be a teacher and see your children grow.  I will love your child, as my own.  I will have high expectations for them, as my own.  I look forward to working with your child and closely working with you throughout this school year.  If, you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
