Mrs. Lanee VanSant

Hello! I have been in education for over thirty years and have experience with diversity in age, culture and needs. After teaching nine years in Early Childhood Special Education, I am thrilled to move into my new role as a K-5 Resource teacher. It is my heart’s desire to continue to work with young learners, instilling a love for learning, building self-esteem while reaching their full potential.

I am from Minnesota and have been a teacher and coach in Missouri and Maryland. Prior to moving to Colorado Springs 12 years ago, I taught physical education K-12, was the Head Woman’s Basketball & Softball coach at Washington College, and opened Little Lights Early Learning Center as an extension of my church in Maryland.  I earned my MS in Special Education from UNC in 2013 and Principal Licensure from UCCS in 2019.

My husband, Joe and I enjoy so much together; walking our dog Asia, motorcycling, hunting, and hosting Bronco parties--but our favorite is finding a bargain at yard sales and second hand stores!
