I am available for tutoring before school Tuesdays-Fridays.  Students are free to stop by if they need extra help or clarification on an assignment. 

About Mr. Lane....

I have been teaching for 13 years, 8 of them here at Luna.  I received my B.A. in English from Sonoma State University and earned my M.Ed. from Lamar University.  I have taught students in grades 6-12 in the content areas of English, Theatre, Student Leadership and Peer Mediation before finding my "home" with G/T a few years ago.  In addition to my various teaching assignments, I have also been a Dean of Student Activities and a Non-Profit Director.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family (one awesome wife and three very active boys), running, home improvement projects, kayaking, hiking, biking, Starbuck's and reading non-fiction.       

Do you know a student at Luna who you think should be tested for G/T?

Do know a student that should be screened for G/T?  Please read the Texas Educational Code definition of a "gifted student."  If you think you know of someone who fits that description, email me that student's name and any other relevant information and I will put them on the list for the next testing session.

Texas Ed Code definition of a G/T student:

A "gifted and talented student" means a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who:

1. exhibits high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area;

2. possesses an unusual capacity for leadership; or

3. excels in a specific academic field.
