Don't disturb the eggs as the lizard you saw running away may have been the mum who will return to the nest. It's better to take a photograph of the eggs where they lie and show the picture to the teacher, or the extension service office.
Some of the university extension offices now accept emailed images for identification. Google your local university adding the words extension service in your search to find their web pages.
You must have a high school near by which has a Biology teacher. You can
always take the eggs there for identification. If you have a college or university close enough, so much the better.
Every good teacher I've ever met is always happy to share their knowledge, and welcomes the chance to share these things with a class.
