Welcome to Lehigh Acres Middle School!!!

Hello,

 

   I am so excited to be working with your scholar this year. We will be discussing responsibility, how we learn, and prioritizing our work. Students will be learning if they are hands-on learners, listening learners, learners by looking, or learners by doing. I feel as though once students know how they learn they can use this knowledge in every subject in school and in life.
