Bienvenidos! I am honored to teach at St. Helena Catholic. My name is Laura (Rivera-Caldwell) Lehman. I have a diverse background working with children. I taught in both public and private Montessori schools at the kindergarten, elementary, & middle school levels. My passion, however, is the wonder in children’s natural curiosities. It’s why I minored in science & pursued my S.T.E.A.M certification. My other passion is math and I collaborate with Khan Academy as a Teacher Ambassador.

I completed my teacher education at Ohio Dominican University in 1999, I began working in the education field in my home town of Cleveland, Ohio. I am completing a Master of Arts in Education and have an Early Childhood & Elementary Montessori teaching credential. When I’m not in the classroom I’m enjoying time with my husband and three boys in this beautiful valley.
