Lauren Bell

Hi!!  My name is Lauren Bell and I wanted to share a little information about myself with you. I am from Detroit, Michigan.   I went to Central Michigan University for my undergrad degree in Elementary ed, and NC State for my Masters in the science of teaching. I began my teaching career in 6th grade in Michigan, then moved to 5th grade in Durham. Now I am thoroughly enjoying teaching the 1st graders at JGE.  I am also a swim coach and instructor, and spend a lot of time in the pool. I have 1 son (12yo in 6th grade). Our family loves spending time together, going to the beach, pool, and baseball. I am passionate about helping my students develop a “growth mindset” and fostering independence. I like to start each school year off by building positive relationships with students and providing a clear understanding of how to SOAR at Jeffreys Grove.
