About the Teacher
My name is Lauren Cummings and I am orginally from Winona, MS. I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2006, with a Bachelors Degree in Social Work and again in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I am licensed to teach Kindergarten through sixth grade in Mississippi and Special Education. This will be my eleventh year teaching at Greenbrook Elementary School. I taught first grade for seven years and three years in kindergarten. This is my first year teaching inclusion in kindergarten. I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction through Arkansas State University and am a National Board Certified teacher.
I am a proud mom to my 2 year old daughter Blakely and my two Morkie fur babies, Baylin and Mila. I have always enjoyed working with children. Having had some great teachers growing up, they inspired me to follow in their footsteps and become an inspirational leader, life-long learner, and a dedicated educator. Over the years, I have had many jobs, but nothing as been as rewarding as becoming a teacher.
As your child's inclusion teacher it is my will to provide educational excellence for all of my students, to attain the highest level of student achievement, to provide a caring, safe, and orderly classroom, and to strive for continuous improvement.
