Special Ed. and Title 1

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 accommodated math 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; 7-year-old Stone, 20-year-old Landon and 22-year-old Keaton and our 1-year-old girl, Ivy. I enjoy long range shooting, hunting, kayaking, camping, cheering for the Huskers and the Royals, cooking with my family and friends and being outside as much as possible! I also enjoy volunteering in the community. I direct the Frontier County Food Pantry and serve as a volunteer EMT with the Frontier County EMS Squad.

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. 

This is my third year teaching at Maywood Public Schools and I thoroughly enjoy it! Before coming to Maywood, my teaching career consisted of 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.

2019-2020 is my fourteenth 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!

Please feel free to contact me at emily.garrison@maywoodtigers.org  If you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
