Hello Dear Students and Families,

I am so happy to be a part of this AWESOME learning community! I teach high school and middle school Spanish and English Language Development at HROA. 

I was born in White Salmon, Washington and grew up in Mosier, Oregon. I love the Northwest!! In high school, I was an exchange student and had the opportunity to live in Chile for a year. This experience changed my life! I not only learned to speak Spanish but also learned that you can find family and a sense of place in the greater world around you. Upon returning, I completed my undergraduate studies in Spanish at the University of Oregon, “Go Ducks!” and then went to Portland State University and completed my Masters in Education. I love learning and sharing that love of learning. This is why I became a teacher :)  

I am here to help you succeed in your learning goals. 


We are in this together! Pura Vida 

Sincerely, Ms. Lawson
