About Lauren

I am a lifelong learner which started with received my Bachelor’s degree from Oakland University with a major in Health Sciences. However, months after graduating I enrolled at Eastern Michigan University where I earned my elementary teaching certificate, special education endorsement in Cognitive Impairment as well as my Master’s Degree in Education. I started teaching in the fall of 2011 at a school in Jackson, MI for individuals with severe disabilities. I spent two and a half years there before moving to Harrisville and working at Alcona Elementary. I enjoy ongoing professional development opportunities, I attend an assortment of workshops and in-services each year, provided by a variety of agencies.
Throughout the past four years of teaching, I have found that sometimes you have to throw your lesson plans away and just listen to what the kids have to say, making each moment a learning opportunity. I love a good challenge; and the different academic levels of my students force me to be creative everyday. You have to think within yourself to create the perfect learning environment for each student. Even though I still feel I am at the beginning of this journey that is becoming my teaching career, it is sure that in the years to come, I will only find more joy in my job. I love kids and everything about them and as long as they keep coming into my classroom I will continue to fill their brains with important lifelong skills.

As an elementary resource room teacher, I have knowledge of k-6 programming within the local districts and have the ability to teach topics using multiple techniques so that the information cliques with students.
