• Hello Parents and Students and welcome to my webpage!!!

    My name is Mr. Lanier and I am very excited to be teaching Science and Social Studies here at Reed Elementary.

    I am originally from Los Angeles and I am a die-hard Dodgers, Rams and Lakers fan.

    Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked 15 years in the corporate world as a Designer at several Architectural and Engineering firms here in the Metroplex. I have designed everything from multi-story complexes, sporting arenas, custom and tract homes and laboratories. Since becoming a teacher, I have found my true calling in this life of mine. I love waking up, although begrudgingly, and making my way to school. I love the excitement on the faces of my students when learning is achieved in a fun and safe environment. I love the lasting relationships that are built throughout the year and maintaining those relationships when the students leave for middle school.

    My wife and I live in Allen with our two children. We have a son (7) and a daughter(3 going on 30). In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, lounging around, and playing with my children.

    To the left, you will see the classroom calendar. I will put assignments with links on the days that I have assigned homework and when they are due. I will also put when assessments, projects and other events in an effort to keep you informed of the "goings on" in Science and Social Studies. I will also be putting links to Google Classroom when we set the Google Classrooms up.

    Looking forward to a great year

    Mr. Lanier
