Mrs. Lauren Burgess
Hello! My name is Lauren Burgess and I have had the pleasure of working at Cox Mill since 2015. I am a graduate of the Cabarrus County School System - years ago I was a Concord Spider. I was always very proud of the education I recieved while at school in this area so I am very excited to try to extend that knowledge to the children I have now. While growing up my Father fostered my curiousity and interest in the natural world around me. He always encouraged me to explore the world around me and to ask questions without fear. This led to me getting a Masters degree in Zoology, work in various museums and travel the world a bit when the opportunity arrose. Now that I am a teacher and mother (of two beautiful little girls) I hope to encourage the same sense of curiousity and wonder in new generations.
I feel so blessed to be able to teach in Cabarrus County at Cox Mill - the students, teachers and administration here are amazing. If there is ever anything I can do to assist you (as a parent, student or even fellow teacher!). Please don't hesitate to ask.
