Lavanta Williams, Principal


    Lavanta Williams The 2019-2020 school year will lead me into my 23rd year in education. Having been a classroom teacher and science specialist for 11 years, Assistant Principal for 3 and completing 8 years as Building Principal, I can firmly say that I consider myself to be a true advocate for students and learning. I challenge myself daily to continue to find innovative strategies and implement best practices to ensure that each student I encounter reaches his or her fullest potential. It is an honor to serve the Lantern Lane community. My goal is to provide you and your child with an educational experience that is transformational and pertinent to his/her educational career and future. I am grateful that you have entrusted me with and to oversee the educational path of your most prized possession, your children. I will continue to assist with the great learning and practices that Lantern Lane is already known for while researching and implementing other practices that will enhance us even further.

I am a graduate of Fort Bend ISD and attended Sugar Mill Elementary, Sugar Land Middle School and Kempner High School. I was fortunate to start my teaching at the elementary school I attended as a student. I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of Houston- Downtown.
