Welcome to SLA PE/Leadership FIT

Coach Lanham and Coach Weidlein



Coach Lanham

I’m extremely excited to be a part of the Student Leadership Academy Family.  Know that I am truly eager to help students make strides along their journey of life.  I started the teaching profession in 2003 and am still passionate and strive to leave a positive impact on any situation before me.  I am not only passionate about my job but my family, faith, and having some fun.   My three children, one grandchild, my husband, and my extended family keep me busy with their activities; we are a very active family in the Venice community.  Even though I am usually occupied with spectating sports, I love to bike, play sports, work out, read, cook, be outdoors, and travel.
