Lori Wilson » Welcome

Welcome

I am so happy to get this site up and running. Feel free to drop by weekly for homework updates, class podcasts, and school information. You can email me with any questions, comments, or concerns at lwilson@colliervilleschools.org.

I have been teaching 5th grade for 15 years at SyCamore. Before that, I taught middle school for 5 years. I love being a teacher. I grew up in Collierville and attended the University of Memphis for my Bachelors degree. I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University. I love my children dearly (at home and at school). I also like to shop, spend time with my family, work around my house, and eat out with friends.
