Ms. Jennifer Lazar

Welcome to my page!  I started my teaching career in 2003, and I have been a teacher at West Leyden High School since the start of the 2009 school year.  I am a teacher in the Literacy Department, and I currently teach both Literacy 111/112 and Literacy 311/312.  In the past, I have also taught English as well as other Literacy courses.   Additionally, I serve in the capacity as a resource/lead teacher for my department, and I am an ACCESS advisor.  I enjoy coming to work each day and working with the amazing students here at Leyden!
