Lynn is a very animated and hands-on teacher. She believes that children need to move and interact with each other; that socialization is just as important to learn as all the skills she teaches. She strives to maintain a quality relationship with her students, as well as their parents, that consists of trust and respect. As a mother herself, she treats her students and parents the way she wants her children and herself to be treated by educators. In addition, it is her mission to teach character education to her students so that they may go through life with kindness and and a positive attitude as they reach their goals.
