This is the image for the news article titled Janel Lowery is the PCS Teacher of the WeekJanel Lowery is a fourth-grade teacher at Oak Lane Elementary School. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from North Carolina Central University. Anyone visiting Miss Lowery’s classroom would never believe that she is only in her second full year of teaching.  Her classroom runs like clockwork! The sense of community felt in her classroom over the last two and half years is simply amazing! She has taken a first-year teacher under her wings this year and they have quickly learned to navigate the fourth-grade curriculum in a way that challenges their students to exceed growth. Amy Seate, principal, states, “Miss Lowery is a gem!  I don’t know how else to describe her work ethic and talent.  She started at Oak Lane in January of 2015 and inherited a class of students who had lost two teachers in four months. Within one short month, she had created an extremely productive and trusting classroom community! All of her students from that year, last year, and this year have benefited from her calm, yet determined, style of teaching. It is simply magical to walk into her classroom day after day, year after year.  We are so fortunate to have her at Oak Lane!”
