Ms. Carter

Hi! My name is Lauren Carter, and I am so excited to come to Lead Mine this year! I have previously taught elementary school in Cary, NC and in Spring Lake, NC as well as in the Austin,TX area. I love teaching elementary students and helping them fall in love with discovering new things and helping them become lifelong learners! I was born in Corpus Christi, TX, but then my family moved to Cary, NC when I was in middle school and I instantly loved how beautiful a place that North Carolina is! I went to Appalachian State University for my undergraduate degree and then went on to receive my master's degree in elementary education from East Carolina University. My family relocated to Texas for my husband’s job several years ago, but then we were blessed to move back home to NC last year. We have four wonderful daughters and our family loves to do anything outdoors!!! I also love to travel (right now we are working on trying to visit all the national parks!), do yoga, and I love to learn new things (I play the harmonica and am working on the ukelele:) And I LOVE being in the classroom!!! I am so excited to get to know each sweet 2nd grader and their families and am looking forward to a wonderful year!
