Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Lauren Byrd, I am the ECS II teacher (previously known as ID Mod II) and am very excited to be returning to Yates Mill. I am in my third year of teaching and still learning every day alongside my wonderful students. I am from the Raleigh area, but was born in Albemarle, NC and moved here when I was 5. I graduated from UNC-Wilmington with a BS in Recreation Therapy and a minor in Psychology. I am very passionate about working with children with disabilities and spend my weekends volunteering at Victory Junction. I love a great adventure and have completed 3 Tough Mudder Obstacle Course Races. When I’m not out adventuring, I love spending time with my husband and our wonderful puppy, Sirius.
