Mrs. Lam has been teaching since 2006 and has been at Cornerstone as a teacher since 2015. She was also a Cornerstone student for grades K-3 and has loved being back as a teacher. Mrs. Lam has taught English as a 2nd language to immigrants; has taught 5th-7th grades; and has also been a paraeducator. Regardless of her teaching context, Mrs. Lam always enjoys helping students realize their potential for learning. She particularly enjoys kindergarten because they help her to find joy in small things. Mrs. Lam married her husband, Andrew, in 2012. They have two daughters, Madison and Emily. When Mrs. Lam isn’t teaching, she spends her time with her family. As a family, they enjoy baking, watching shows, yard work, and going out to explore OMSI, the zoo, and the Oregon Coast. Mrs. Lam is thankful to be part of a school where Christ is the center of everything and where everyone feels like family.
