Lara Wood

I was born and raised in San Diego where I attended Point Loma High School.  I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder where I received a degree in Psychology and U.S. History.  I hold a multiple subject and Special Education Credential, as well as Masters in Cross-Cultural Education. I love working as an Education Specialist on the Kearny High Complex where I help students and teachers alike as we explore the different modalities in which we learn and process information.

My husband, Rob (who is also a teacher!) and I have three active children.  When we are not at lacrosse, soccer, swimming or water polo practice, we enjoy spending time on the water, fishing, sailing, or just hanging out at the beach.  I also love to spend my free time in the kitchen creating new dishes or curling up with my dog and a good book.
