Lauren Lee

I'm thrilled to continue Instructional Coaching this fall. Having taught English at Arapahoe for twelve years, this trajectory feels like a great, new way to inspire growth in Arapahoe's already-strong community. I remember asking a college professor and mentor why she chose to leave the high school classroom to work with teachers; she shared how inspired she was by shaping the students of all the teachers with whom she works. That grandiose idea has inspired me and already drives my coaching work: supporting teachers and, therefore, helping Arapahoe students be empowered, successful, lifelong learners.

Outside Arapahoe, my two favorite pastimes are being a wife and mom. My husband, Andy, is a local Realtor. I have two daughters: Emarie, my giggly, snuggly five-month-old and McKenna, my almost-three-year-old busy, running, dancing comedian. I love spending time with family and friends, lifting weights, cooking, doing yoga, seeing live music, and, of course, reading and learning.

Anne Smith:

I have told my students over the years, that in our classroom, I believe we can change the world. I want to carry this same attitude forward to working with an entire school of learners including myself. I am extremely excited about this new learning adventure Lauren and I are undertaking and am so grateful for the support of our families, friends, school and community to make Arapahoe a place for all learners to succeed and grow. I know Lauren and I will grow with the teachers and students here at AHS.

I also will continue to teach two sections of 9th grade at AHS: all boys 9th grade and 9th grade Honors. Besides teaching and working as the IC, I am an assistant coach on the AHS girls cross country team.

Outside of my work at Arapahoe, I love running, skiing(both water and snow), yoga, reading and learning (follow me on Goodreads @ Anne K), attending concerts, and spending time with my family and friends. My husband Jeff teaches and coaches at AHS. I have two high schoolers, Jackson and Emma, and one middle schooler, Will.
