• Welcome to 9th Grade English!

    My name is Desiree Lyman, and I will be teaching the 9th grade English curriculum to your son/daughter.  The 2019-2020 school year will be the start of my sixth year of teaching at Fillmore Central School.  This year I will be teaching English AIS and an accelerated English 8  to accompany my English 9 classes. 

    A little information about me: I grew up in Belmont and moved to Belfast after receiving my English 7-12 degree at SUNY Fredonia.  Once employed by Fillmore CS in the fall of 2014, I began working towards a MSEd in Differentiated Instruction (Students with Disabilities) with an extension in Gifted Education.  After this degree was earned and with more time on my hands, I have had the opportunity to stay after school with students and coach softball.
