Hello! My name is Lori Dearman and I am the Fifth Grade Special Education Teacher. I serve students in the Resource and Inclusion classroom settings.  This year will be my 19th year in education and my 10th year teaching in Elkhart. I graduated from the University of Houston-Victoria in with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, Elementary Education and Special Education. I am originally from South Texas.  I'm blessed to work in such a great, family-oriented district! I am a mother of two beautiful children, ages  13 and 8, who attend Elkhart ISD. I stay busy with my children, but when I have free time, I love to work in the garden, craft, and read.

If you need to contact me, my conference time is 10:45-11:35 p.m., Monday-Friday. You may also contact me by calling the school at 903-764-8535. My email is [email protected] I look forward to a successful year with your child!
