"My name is Lauren R. I have been a teacher in a small, rural community for 26 years. My husband and I have raised 5 children currently aged 22-30 while being very active in our church, local shelters, animal rescue and youth sports. I love to travel. Recently, we traveled to Ireland to experience and learn about the culture and landforms. In addition, I was awarded a grant through Fund For Teachers to spend two weeks in The Galapagos to study ecosystems, plate tectonics, and invasive species. This was an experience of a lifetime. I believe that all children have the capacity to learn through a variety of approaches and connections. I am excited to share my love of learning beyond my local community.

I have taught elementary and middle school math throughout my 26 years tenure. Throughout that time, I have developed the skill of approaching concepts from many directions and modalities offering a variety of strategies and connections not only to the realm of math, but to science, language and daily life. I am excited about finding solutions and share this with my students.

Science is my passion. I love to inquire, research, investigate, find plausible solutions leading to new inquiry. Currently, I teach grades 5 and 6 science; however, I have taught elementary science ranging from grades 2-6 over the course of 26 years. I am well studied in NGSS science standards and have written the K-8 science curriculum for our school. This allows me to fully grasp the cross cutting connections, engineering requirements and science core content.

Writing is essential in communication, personal discovery and creativity. Over my years of teaching, I have successfully developed writers who are able to express their understanding of non fiction concepts, personal experiences, and personal thoughts and emotional processing effectively in a variety of genre. Written expression connects all forms of learning and interpersonal connection.

I am excited work with students who are eager to improve in any subject area as well" less...
