“We spent about 10 years teaching together, so it’s been kind of tough to deal with,” he said.

Harris took over Lawrence-Lane’s classes on Monday.

“We had the opportunity to laugh together and to cry together, and just give the students the opportunity to process it however they felt they needed to process it,” he said.

He said students had the opportunity to write notes in a memory album that will go to Lawrence-Lane’s family.

“She was an awesome person,” Harris said. “She was passionate about her teaching. She loved math. She could get excited about the silliest things. She loved the kids. It was all about helping them to be successful. She thoroughly enjoyed what she did.

“As a math department, we were always a close family, and we always would eat lunch together and we would always laugh together. She’s going to be sorely missed. She was a big part of our family, and it’s going to be tough going in their eating lunch with an empty chair.”

Lawrence-Lane was originally from Lenoir County and graduated from North Lenoir High School. She married her husband, Jeremy Lane, in December and had a stepson, Alex.
