Lawrence holds an Associates of Fine Arts degree in Visual Design from Northern Virginia CC - NOVA (where he earned 1st prize in drawing and 2nd in photography!) and a B.S. in Fashion Development & Marketing from Stevens Institute of Business & Arts. He comes to Kairos with intersectional experiences in art, management and education as a previous Social Media Manager and Sales Lead for Blick Arts in St. Louis, Commercial Stylist, Artist in Residence, and most recently, a Visual Arts Teacher and Art Department Chair at Eagle College Prep School in St. Louis.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
