New Role

My name is Jamie Schar.  I am an Iowa State graduate. I have my coaching, reading, and special education endorsement in addition to my elementary teaching degree.  


I enjoy working at Central Lyon. I love being part of such a great school system and community. I am looking forward to yet another great year. After teaching first grade for twelve years, I am entering a new role in special education for 2022.  I am also  Central Lyon's head volleyball coach. GO LIONS!  

My husband's name is Matt; we have a six-year old son, Emmet and a two year old little girl, Kora.  I also have a step daughter and her name is Avery. She will be an 8th grader at CL this year. We love to do things outside! 

First grade is a busy year. First grade friends will be introduced to many different kinds of skills and concepts. They will leave first grade having obtained many new things.  The first graders' year will consist of many enriching, hands-on activities. They will spend a lot of time throughout this school year working to become excellent readers and writers.  As a teacher, I strive to teach lessons that meet all of the different types of learners I  will have in the classroom.
