Hello! My name is Emily Garrison-Lenz and it’s great to be a Maywood Tiger! I am serving the students of Maywood as the K-12 Special Education and Title 1 teacher. I currently teach resource and resource reading classes to students who need a little extra help. I provide interventions and accommodations to students who might benefit from them and I co-teach in classrooms throughout the school.
My husband, Tyron and I live in Curtis with our three boys; 6-year-old Stone, 19-year-old Landon and 21-year-old Keaton and our new baby girl, Ivy. I enjoy hunting, kayaking, camping, cheering for the Huskers and the Royals, cooking with my family and friends and being outside as much as possible!
I received my Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science and Natural Resources from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. I received my Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology from the University of Nebraska - College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis. I received my Masters of Agriculture with a focus in Extension Education from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. I received my teaching certificate and my Natural Science 6-12 endorsement from the University of Nebraska in Kearney. I received my K-12 Special Education endorsement from Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota. I recently received my state and national certification as an EMT, and I volunteer with the Frontier County EMS Squad.
This is my second year teaching at Maywood Public Schools and I thoroughly enjoy it! My teaching career includes 3 years teaching middle school science in Grand Island, NE, 3 years teaching middle school science in the Colorado Springs and Denver Colorado area, 3 years teaching middle school Special Education and Science in Cheyenne, WY and 2 years teaching high school chemistry and physical science in North Platte, NE.
2018-2019 is my thirteenth year of teaching and it promises to be the best so far! I am enamored with the students, staff and parents at Maywood Public Schools and am honored to be working with and for each of you!
