Janice Lear

I am excited to join the team at Lionville Middle School, and serve the students of #lionnation!
I am passionate about the education of our children and believe there is no more exciting time than the years of early adolescence.  My twelve years of teaching experience have all been at the middle level, and I have been fortunate to teach 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  I spent the last ten years in the Unionville- Chadds Ford School District, and have taught Social Studies, Math, English and Literacy. 
I earned my BA from Villanova University- and as such live and breathe Villanova basketball.  My Masters is from Penn State, and I earned my K-12 Principal Certificate from Immaculata University.
As a parent in the Downingtown community, I am both honored and humbled to join the Administrative team at LMS.  I am the proud parent of three amazing children- Jack, Bridget, and Shane- who serve as a reminder of the awesome responsibility we have to the children of DASD.
