Dr. Lyon

Hello! I am Kristin Lyon, a special education resource teacher at Sunset Hill Elementary. I have my bachelor’s degree in elementary education and my master’s degree in special education from the University of Florida (go gators). I have my doctorate degree in special education from the University of Kansas (rock chalk). I have a variety of teaching experience in both general education and special education at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I previously taught in Florida and an international school in Beijing, China. Prior to teaching at Sunset Hill, I spent 11 years in higher education working in both teacher preparation and educational research. I am passionate about collaborating with all stakeholders to meet individual student needs so that every student can succeed. I was born in Florida and have also lived in Georgia, Pennsylvania, China, and Illinois. My family and I are very happy to now call Lawrence home. I love traveling, reading, and spending time with my husband and son, Bennett- a student at Sunset Hill. I am so excited to be here!
