Mrs. Brewer is Lumen’s cutting-edge science teacher
At Lumen we have known for a long time that Mrs. Brewer doesn’t use a ‘cookie cutter’ approach and that means she stays on top of science research. As the recipient of the “Partners in Science” grant from the Murdock Charitable Trust, Mrs. Brewer develops professional research skills which she then brings into our classrooms. Our students – your children – greatly benefit from Mrs. Brewer’s scholarly pursuits and they will be well prepared for college.
