Inspirational Educator of the Month
Congratulations to Katie Landon on being named the November 2016 Inspirational Educator of the Month.
Ms. Landon says she has wanted to become a teacher as long as she can remember. She loved being at school where she felt safe and had fun learning. Inspired by many teachers she respected and loved, she knew that teaching was her true vocation. She demonstrates her passion for education regularly, and she represents a key component in pulling us together as a team. Teamwork is at the heart of her greatest likes here at Lansdowne High School, citing the way that the Vikings always pull together and are consistently resilient.
Ms. Landon is our STAT teacher here at LHS. For those unfamiliar with the STAT program, it is an acronym for Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow, and is the BCPS initiative to infuse technology into education and to increase student engagement. Ms. Landon comes to us with experience as an English teacher in Baltimore County. The STAT teacher position gives her great opportunities to not only interact with our students, but to also help to teach the teachers and help them to design engaging lessons.
Katie hails from Baltimore, and has an educational background with strong ties to the local area. She earned her Associates Arts degree from the Community College of Baltimore County, her Bachelor of Science degree from Towson University, and her Master of Arts degree from Goucher College, all here in Baltimore County. She’s even continuing her education at the nearby Notre Dame of Maryland University.
We count ourselves fortunate to have such a talented educator here at LHS. It is with great Viking Pride that we celebrate this award for Ms. Katie Landon. Undoubtedly, her husband and children (twin boys and a girl) are also proud of her. Congratulations!
