Lorena ISD places a strong emphasis on the use of technology in the classroom. We believe it is essential for our students to learn responsible and efficient use of technology to be successful moving forward. Some of our teachers go above and beyond to achieve this mission. If you know of a teacher who deserves special recognition for his/her use of technology in the classroom, please submit the form found at

You may nominate as many teachers as you like. Nominations will remain open until May 31st, and teachers will be recognized in June.

     I take pictures quite a bit throughout the school year.  Right now there are 45 different events that I've taken pictures of, from field trips to awards assemblies, to playground fun, to academics in the classroom.  Many of the pictures are poses.  Girls especially like to pose with their friends.  When boys' pictures are taken, they usually act goofy or silly.  For the most part, everyone likes to get their pictures taken.  Our students know that at the end of the year I have a slide show of the year's events.  I include music with the slides and the show usually is at least 20 minutes long - yes, we have a lot of memories throughout the year.  Students always like to see themselves in the pictures and it is my goal to include as many of the students' pictures as possible.  I want students to say, "I saw myself on the show."  I want every child to know they are important in our family here at Lorena Elementary School.
     There are some that I can't help by smile at.  I know students really like "crazy pictures."  These are group pictures that students can act silly and then be caught on camera with that face.  Some of the faces (including staff members) are priceless.
     In my many years (almost too many to count) as an educator I have made many memories with the students I've served.  Even as a principal I can pal with the students.  My relationships with my students are very important to me.  When I was a teacher, that was my primary goal - to get to know the students and find ways to meet their needs.
     I hope I've met the needs of your child(ren) this year.  I've enjoyed being their principal and am looking forward to another great year in 2015
In an effort to gather information and improve our schools and district, we are requesting your participation in a short parent survey. The survey will be available until May 1st. We want to hear from you.

Please take a few minutes and provide us with feedback in order to make our schools the best they can be. We appreciate you being partners with us in our most important responsibility of educating your children.

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.
