My name is Alli Jo Lacy and this is my 13th year at Highland Park. I previously taught Reading Intervention (RTI) for 1st and 2nd grade for 5 years and this is my 8th year in 4th grade. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Human Learning from Tennessee Tech University. I also earned my Master's Degree in Instructional Leadership from Tennessee Tech University. I received my Educational Specialist (EdS) Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University. I currently live in Knoxville with my daughter Mari Blair. When I'm not at school, I enjoy going to the gym and watching my daughter compete in gymnastics.
I am so excited to have your child in 4th grade this year! This is going to be an exciting year filled with lots of hard work and discovery. You will be so surprised to see how much your child matures and grows during this school year!
