Welcome to third grade!

Welcome to third grade! My name is Lauren Weaver and this is my fourth year teaching at Banoak. I’m excited to begin our journey into third-grade math and science.

I grew up in Catawba County, attending Banoak as a young child. I was influenced to become a teacher by Mrs. Spake, my second-grade teacher. In 2011, I graduated from Fred T. Foard and attended Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) where I graduated in 2013 with an Associates in Arts (General Education). I transferred to Appalachian State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude in December 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Right out of college, I taught high school math at Fred T. Foard before transferring to Banoak. While at Banoak, I have taught first, second, and third grade. This will be my fourth year teaching and second year in third grade. This year I will be teaching math and science (my favorite subjects)!

Thank you for entrusting me with your child; I am excited to work with you and your family this year!

My Favorite things...

In my spare time, I love to travel! During my time at Appalachian, I taught overseas in an all-boys Catholic school in Wicklow, Ireland. I have visited all 50 states and over 30 countries. When I am not traveling around the world, I enjoy spending time with my niece and nephew (pictured above). They always keep me on my toes! Some of my other favorite things to do include shopping trips to Target, Starbucks coffee, hiking nearby trails (South Mountain and Baker's Mountain), biking the Virginia Creeper Trail, tubing down the river, and gardening.
