Mrs. Lyon

Welcome to the next semester!

My name is Mrs. Lyon. It is spelled L-Y-O-N without the S and it is pronounced “Lyon” like the animal. I would like to be addressed by Mrs. Lyon please. Thank you. I enjoy teaching and I am proud to be your teacher. You can relax, you are in good hands with me.


I had a restful holiday season sharing it with my family. I had a big Christmas dinner at my house hosting 20 people. We had ham and smoked brisket!! Afterwords, I traveled to Fayetteville Arkansas to watch the Razorbacks play basketball. Go Hogs!!


You are going to have one of the greatest educational experiences of your life. This classroom will be well organized, and you will feel well cared for while you are in it. You will not only learn Personal Finance skills, but I will also share with you information about the career world and life skills to help you succeed in tomorrow’s world. So WELCOME!
