My name is Lauren Andrews and I am thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten at St. Mary’s School. I have lived in Sault Ste. Marie most of my life, graduating from Sault High in 2000. After high school I attended Calvin College for two years and finished my Elementary Education degree at Lake State. My first experience with St. Mary’s was eight years ago during my teaching internship through Lake State. I loved every minute of it and hoped someday I would be able to work here again. Thankfully, last year, I spent the first half of the school year working in the Montessori preschool, and learned so much about hands on learning. When I was given the opportunity to teach in the Kindergarten classroom, I happily accepted. Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, being outside whenever possible, camping, and reading whatever I can get my hands on. I hope to share my own love of learning and adventure with my students so they will be excited and enthusiastic every time they walk into the classroom.
