Ms. Lauren Penland
Hello! My Name is Lauren Penland and I am so excited to join the Irvin team this school year! This will be my third year teaching and they have all been spent in 4th grade. I also have experience in first and second grade. This will be a different start to the year but I know we will continue to do our best and have fun while learning all that we can!
I attended Western Carolina University, where I performed in the marching band for three of my four years there playing the flute. I also spent time hiking all through the beautiful mountains surrounding campus. In December of 2016 I graduated with my bachelors in elementary education. After graduation I took some time away from the classroom to work in Outdoor Education at a camp that I spent my summers working at. While working here I got to teach Science hands on in the environment that we were learning about as well as working high ropes obstacle courses, canoeing, and hiking up the camp's mountain! I loved it but soon made my way back the indoor classroom where I learned even more about teaching and working with my own groups of students.
I am excited for this year to begin!
