I'm Mrs. Lapostol, your child's teacher. This will be my 25th year here at LCES, so chances are I've had another child in class before this year.
I have two grown sons: a geologist and a teacher. I am a new grandmother! I have a wonderful dog named Olive. I love the outdoors: camping, canoeing, gardening, swimming, walking, and travel. I also love to read and cook.
I have my undergraduate degree in Child Development and a Master's Degree in Teaching. The great majority of my teaching has been at the elementary level, however I also taught Honors and AP English at the high school level for a few years.
Fifth grade is my passion! Social studies is my specialty, and I also love reading and math! Science is not my forte, but luckily it is Mrs. Savage's. She will be your child's science teacher, and I'll take over social studies for her class. We have been grade level partners for over 20 years, and rest assured, we make a great and very consistent team.
There really is a lot to look forward to, and I look forward to a great Fifth Grade year!
