At Lyons, staff is fully dedicated to the mission, vision and most importantly, the students, of our school. They are committed to continually improving their own professional practice.

We are always engaged in professional development to enable us to best meet the needs of our students. If we are going to provide the best possible education to our students, we need to be passionate about learning ourselves. We are well educated, well traveled and engaged in our work. Educating and supporting our students and community are crucial in improving our community and our world. We see our work as far more than a job. It is purposeful, extremely important and life-changing for our students and ourselves.
