Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Carole Lane
I can’t imagine myself having any other career path except for one in the education field! I have been a teacher for most of my adult life finding it stimulating, challenging and extremely fulfilling.
I grew up in a small town outside of Springfield, Massachusetts. The New England falls are breathtaking, so this has always been my favorite season. My parents still live in the house where I spent my childhood, and I have been fortunate to be able to go back to visit them several times a year. I have two amazing sons that have completed their college education and are currently living in Sonoma County, California, too.
After earning a BA in psychology (Clark University) and a MA in education (Springfield College), I lived and taught in Houston, Texas, for six years. Eventually, I moved to California in 1988. I worked nine years in the Harmony School District before coming to Bennett Valley. This year will mark my fifteenth year teaching here at Strawberry. I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a supportive, innovative educational community!
“Ms. Lane creates and maintains an excellent, friendly rapport with the students even as she insists that they be diligent and productive with their assignments. Her classroom management is as effective as it is seamless, respectful, and unobtrusive. She has shown that she can manage the most egregious behaviors with calm effectiveness.” - Scott Humble
