Vanessa Caylor

Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

I grew up in Kansas and have lived there all my life. I graduated from Union College in Lincoln, NE with a bachelor degree in Elementary Education. I believe that God has called me to be part of the LSA family, and I'm thankful that He has given me the opportunity to teach His kids. My goal is for students to become more independent and responsible as I teach them foundational skills they will use for a lifetime. Most importantly, I want my kids to know that Jesus is always there for them as a Savior and a Friend.
