Ms. Lauren Brown
Hi there! Currently, I've taught English literature and language at Woodcreek High School for four years, and before that in the Bay Area (2014-2016) and Japan (2010-2011). I've taught all grades, but 2019-2020, I am teaching English 10 and ELD 3. I am enthusiastic to curate a comprehensive learning environment which challenges all students to be reflective, respectful, and responsible in all academic endeavors. I'm most passionate about seeing students connect with each other and to the text, but beyond this, witnessing the connections students organically make themselves and share.
On a personal note, I love culture and travel. I've been to every continent (sans Antartica), and learn exponentially from what other cultures and ways of life offer. I enjoy baking, hiking, swimming, yoga, and reading for fun.
I look forward to this 2019-2020 year. Each class period is different, and I'm excited to meet all who enter room 401.
