Mrs. Mergel

Welcome back Beacons to the 2021-2022 school year!!!

My name is Mrs. Lauren Mergel. I am the 1-5 Structured Learning Teacher for Charles E. Boger Elementary School. This upcoming year will be my ninth full year with the Beacon family and my eleventh year working in a self-contained class for students with Autism and Developmental Disabilities. I am trained in Crisis Prevention Intervention (management of behaviors to ensure safe outcomes by de-escalating moments of crisis) as well as the TEACCH method. 

I am a Native New Yorker who has been living in North Carolina with my husband and dog for 8 years.  We welcomed our daughter last school year in February. She is growing so much and so will your children this year!!! I love teaching and I cannot wait to spend the year getting to know and working with all my students.
