About The Teacher
Lawrence Stinson is from a small military town in the state of Georgia. At a young age his family moved to Chicago, Illinois as well as Washington D.C. where he spent ten years of his youth. Once Lawrence and his family moved back to Georgia this is when he felt like he was truly home. After graduating high school and taking a few years off from school, Lawrence decided to attend Georgia Military College where he earned an Associates of Science degree in Health and Physical Education. After graduating from Georgia Military College, Lawrence transferred to Kennesaw State University which is located just north of Atlanta, Georgia. There he pursued and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Studies with a concentration in Physical Education and Sports Management with a minor in Coaching. Lawrence has been in the field of education for a little over three years, before moving to Sacramento, California he started out as a one on one Paraeducator for his hometown high school in Georgia. After some persuasion from his sister he decided to make the move across the country to Sacramento, California. Once Lawrence arrived in Sacramento, he was offered a position as a transporter/teacher assistant with a school who strictly helped students with Autism and Emotional Behavioral Disorders. After spending some time working with kids, Lawrence was offered a position to work with adults at Highlands Community Charter School as a Paraeducator which led to him being the main point of contact for the Tutoring Center. After working at Highlands for almost two years a teaching position with California Innovative Career Academy (CICA) became available which enthralled Lawrence. This is his first year as a teacher and he is excited for what the future holds. In his free time, Lawrence loves to travel, hike, DIY projects, and eat new cuisine.
