Lana has an incredible knack for getting kids to believe in themselves. It is truly something to behold. She brings to Anastasis a wealth of experience from her time as an educator in an international environment. After receiving a B.A. in History and a M.A.T. (Masters in the Art of Teaching) from the University of Arkansas, where she was also on the swim team, Lana taught English, drama, history, and geography in London-area schools. She also spent 6 summers working with youth at Kanakuk Kamp in Branson, MO. Prior to moving to Colorado, Lana taught world history and US history for two years in Plainfield, Indiana, where she also served as a swimming coach to the Plainfield High School Swimming and Diving Team. Before coming to Anastasis Academy, she worked for Denver K-Life as a youth mentor and leader, and at Valor Christian High School as the Student Life Coordinator and World History Teacher.
