Greetings and Salutations. My name is Mrs. Lahr and I am delighted to be a third grade teacher at Overhills Elementary. I became part of the Overhills "family" in November of 2021. This is my second year teaching 3rd grade. I have previously taught 2nd, 1st, and 5th grades in Harnett and Lee counties since earning my degree in Elementary Education in 2019. My teaching philosophy is that teachers should guide students to reach their individual potential while creating a comfortable, accepting environment for discovery. I believe consistency is key in the classroom and that students thrive when they feel like they are appreciated and respected.
Personal life: I have lived in this area for over 20 years. My husband and I have 6 kids (from college age to fourth grade). In our spare time we love to visit museums, parks, zoos, and aquariums, as well as the beach and mountains. We also have tons of animals, from cats to chameleons, who are a part of our family.
