Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Lashway

I am going into my 9th year in education and am excited to be joining the Memorial Elementary family as a teacher specialist. Prior to coming to Memorial I was an upper-elementary classroom teacher; Most recently I was the fifth grade ELA teacher at Walnut Bend Elementary in HISD.  I completed my undergraduate studies at St. Lawrence University in government and environmental science. Upon graduation I knew that I wanted to find a career that allowed me to pursue my interest in public service and make a greater impact on the world. This search ultimately led me to join Teach for America, which brought me to Houston, TX! Since then, I have received my Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University and my principal certification from Lamar University. In my free time I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband and our fur-baby, Oliver!
