Teaching Philosophy:

“The most rigorous reading is to find what those words on that page mean in our own lives.” - Kylene Beers

My name is Lauren Vandever, and I teach 7th grade English and Pre-Ap English. I am entering my 6th year of teaching, and I very excited to work with your student this year.

For further information, please see the links across the top of the page where you will be able to find the syllabus, link to Remind, and other resources as the year goes by.

I strongly encourage you to read my full About Me page because it will give you a better idea of who I am.

I also encourage you to sign up for my Remind.com, but it allows me to send out more information to the parents. I will use Remind to send text messages and emails to parents and students to remind them of upcoming tests, nightly homework, or any important details regarding the class or school. It is completely confidential, and you can unsubscribe anytime. I really hope ALL parents and students will sign up for this so that we can all have a successful year.

I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you as the year progresses!
