In her own words…

“There is a quote I love from the Bengali poet, Tagore, ‘each child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.’ As a kindergarten teacher, I am so privileged to work with our youngest learners and am present as their gifts and talents are reveled. “

In the words of others . . .

“Ms. Davis was a kindergarten teacher at Terrace Elementary School for 24 years, and this year she joined our staff at Nottingham Elementary and has served as our Kindergarten Team Leader. . . .She hosted a ‘Gingerbread Night’ of reading where students and their parents came together in their pajamas to enjoy some hot cocoa and a good book.”
  Principal Roy Moore, Nottingham Elementary School

“Where do I begin? Lori is . . . amazing. Incredible, compassionate, and special! Lori makes every child feel cared for and accepted just as they are. She should be teaching classroom management in-services to every teacher in our district.”
  Laurie Cerda, former student
