Welcome to Mr. LaVanway's Third Grade Website.

Who is Mr. LaVanway?

I am a 1984 Graduate of Coloma High School, who at the age of 17, went off to college in Southfield, MI to pursue a career in Architecture. After working in the field for several years I chose a new path and began a career in Civil Engineering. 

When children came along, a son now 34 and a daughter now 30, both graduates of Coloma, I wanted to make a personal difference in the world.

Where better?


Back to college. With a Masters Degree from Western Michigan I began my employment at Coloma Community Schools, my home. This year (2023), I am beginning my Seventeenth year of teaching. I am honored to work daily with the children of my community and I take great pride in their achievements right along side you .... the outstanding, caring, and nurturing parents, in our happy little corner of the world.
