My name is Lara McClendon. 

I am teaching Art at Paine Elementary school. This will be my 17th year teaching!

I am currently working on my Doctorate in Education in Curriculum and Instruction at Alabama. 

I live on my family farm with daughter, Natalie, who is a senior at Springville High School. She is the Drum Major and a trumpet player in the band.  We have 3 cats (Saphira, Cleo, and Oliver) and a new puppy named Nala. We are both avid readers and love a good mystery.
