Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Kristin Lyon, and I am so excited to be teaching at Sunset Hill. I grew up in Florida, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. I earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education and my master’s degree in special education from the University of Florida (go gators). I earned my doctorate degree in special education from the University of Kansas (rock chalk). While working in education for the past 20 years, I have taught a variety of classes in general education and special education at the elementary, middle, high school, and college level. Besides Kansas, I have also taught in Florida, Illinois, and even China. After two years at Sunset Hill as a special education resource teacher, I am excited to transition to teaching 2nd/3rd grade. I am happy to call Lawrence home with my husband Chris, my dog Nugget, and my son Bennett (a student at Sunset Hill). When I am not a school, I enjoy reading, sewing, traveling, and spending time with my family.
