Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Christopher Lanza
As an educator, I have over twenty years of experience. I started teaching in Brooklyn, NY in 2000 as an elementary teacher. While teaching, I attended New York University at night to get my Master’s Degree in Library Science. In 2005, my family and I relocated to Ocala, FL. I continued as a classroom teacher at Fessenden Elementary teaching 4th grade and kindergarten. Then, I transferred to Oakcrest Elementary School as a Media Specialist. After working there for several years, I moved to Wyomina Park and Sunrise Elementary as a split Media Specialist. In 2015, I started working at Ward-Highlands Elementary School as the Media Specialist. I love working with the kids and getting them excited about books. As an educator and parent, I know what my students need and am happy to provide them with the very best instruction. Children will learn an appreciation for literature, digital citizenship, research skills, and much more with me in the Media Center.
