Nathan Lambert, B.A.
Education and experience
I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. I then began my master’s degree in linguistics, where my path toward understanding learning differences led me to teaching. My teaching career first started in public school with freshmen and junior English courses. I then started looking for a school that specialized in students who learn differently.
What is your favorite thing about teaching at The St. Anthony School?
Starting as a teacher and then growing into the director position has given me an incredibly rewarding perspective. From being part of the intake process with new families, to working with them as a team to help shape their child’s future, to initiating that child in the classroom to effect change is a tremendous experience. Ultimately, sharing a child’s visually evident growth with the parents fulfills my mission and that of the school.
What is your most memorable moment since you've been at St. Anthony?
Handing a diploma, with a big hug, to a student who came to our school with so much fear and anxiety from his previous school that he wouldn’t get out of bed to show up. With our staff’s care and patience, we grew to understand him and found ways to engage him, build rapport and a personal relationship, and break through his armor that guarded him for so long. After eight years at The St. Anthony School, he proudly shook my hand, in tears, and walked across our stage and graduated.
What is the one thing you want every parent to know about this school?
We will not fail; we will not give up. We will do whatever it takes to offer success for your child.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Being outdoors with my wife and son, cooking, playing guitar, traveling.
