• Welcome to the Family Engagement Center   


  • Hello, I am Laura Lindsay, your Parent Instructional Coordinator (PIC). I am a native Georgian, born in Atlanta and raised in Lithonia. I received my BS degree in Early Childhood Education from Morris Brown College. I received my MA degree in Education from Central Michigan University and my ED.S degree in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University. I taught for 30 years in DeKalb County School District, where I retired from in 2016. I joined the ALES family in 2017.

    As your Parent Instructional Coordinator, my goal is to provide a positive atmosphere where parents are empowered to motivate their children in our ever-changing world of learning. It is my belief that, when given the necessary tools and equipment, all children can learn and be successful! I am here to support you - your child's first teacher, through the resources we have in the Family Engagement Center.

    Parent engagement is not one size fits all. Meaningful parent engagement allows parents to use their time and talents to support their child’s academic achievement through various opportunities. There are many different ways parents can be involved in their child’s education at Anderson-Livsey Elementary.

    PTA membership
