About Mrs. Lawson

Hello and Welcome Back! If you found this webpage, you are probably one of my students this year. I am so excited to have you, and I look forward to working with you this year!

I received both my bachelor's and master's degrees from UNC Chapel Hill. This is my first year teaching and my first year at River Mill Academy. I'm so happy to be here and I think we will have a wonderful year together!

Over the summer, I got married and became Mrs. Lawson. You may see a Katie Holder on the website. If you do, that's me. As the year progresses, my name will be listed as Katie Lawson. Since getting married, I also have moved to Hillsborough which I absolutely love! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, watching crime and cooking shows, or spending time with family.

Middle school is an exciting time, full of growth and changes. During this time of growth, we will work together, learn together, encourage one another, and have fun! Most importantly, we will love and respect one another.
