After several years working with the district in other teaching roles, the Lyons Central School District is excited to welcome Mrs. Amanda Bookmiller into her own classroom as a new 5th grade teacher for the 2022-23 school year. Mrs. Bookmiller has worked with the district since 2017, first as a part-time substitute and then as a classroom aide, teacher assistant and crisis interventionist. Over the last few years, Mrs. Bookmiller has had the chance to work with students in all of our Elementary grade levels, and she’s excited to finally have a classroom of her own.
Now several weeks into her new role as Principal of Lyons Elementary School, Mrs. Chris Taylor is thoroughly enjoying the process of finding her groove in the District. She loves welcoming kids into school each morning and getting to know the staff. After spending the last 26 years of her career at the Geneva City School District, she was a bit nervous to make such a big switch, but thankfully she says it was 100% the right move. “When I learned about the team that Dr. Barr was putting together at Lyons, I recognized the quality and caliber of people and I felt like so much of the culture was student-driven — and I wanted to be a part of it,” Mrs. Taylor said. “Now, I am so grateful to be in Lyons.”
