Mrs. Lawton

Hello, my name is Mrs. Lawton.  I'm the Special Education and Resource Teacher at Oak Hill Elementary. I joined the Oak Hill team in the 2019-20 academic year. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UMSL, which has allowed me to work with kids throughout our community for 6 years before prior to 2019. I live right here in South City, and am currently attending UMSL for my Masters Degree in Cross-Catagorical Special Education. I am looking forward to working with you and your children in person, and to having a great year! Please feel free to email me at with any question or concerns regarding your child, and connect with me on ClassDojo for weekly news letters and updates.
