I’m Morgan Lyons: a wife, mom, educator, and business owner. I am fulfilling my childhood dream of impacting the field of education by both being a teacher and running my business, Growing Beyond The Books (GBTB). I began studying the Enneagram (a typology personality system that is very detailed + accurate) years ago in order to advance my transformation in self-development and personal growth. I quickly realized how powerful it was and became a certified Enneagram coach so I could share the goodness with others. Since then, I have combined my love and passion for education with my knowledge of the Enneagram and started GBTB. With GBTB, I lead PD trainings using a curriculum I have written that outlines some foundational components of the Enneagram. As a result of my programs, school staff learn about themselves, which in turn transforms school culture/environment, classroom structure/organization, empathy, and overall effectiveness.
