Meet Your Teacher

In General

Hello! I am Veronica Irwin-Lucas. I am a 27 year old hopeless romantic. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was 16. I truly love coming to work EVERY morning; I have the GREATEST job.

I also have a wonderful husband who understands that I love my job and often makes his own dinner because of it. We have a beautiful brown Labrador who is spoiled beyond belief. His name is Hagen.

I live by the belief that “If given a cape and a tiara, I am fairly certain I could save the world.” I would also like to add that coffee helps.

COFFEE ALWAYS HELPS!

Educational Philosophy

I believe that education is the foundation to all other professions. What I do is VERY important and I take it VERY seriously. But I also know I can’t do it all on my own. “It take a village to raise a child.” I need the support of the parents if my student (your child) is going to be successful. We need to be a team, so please be open and honest with me, so we can TOGETHER give your child everything they need.

Experience

I believe it is important for you to know what I am bringing to the table.
