Welcome to West Lake Elementary AIG/IG/AG/Talent Development/Enrichment
JOIN ME AT NCAGT 2024!
Mrs. Lauren Roy
This is my 16th-ish year of teaching (minus a little time off with my children). I am passionate about working with children and helping them to learn new and exciting things! I have taught 4th grade, 5th grade, 2nd grade and Pre-K-5th grade science. I decided to receive my certification in the area of AIG to help students and teachers with more challenging activities that keep ALL minds engaged at ALL times!
In my free time, I love spending time with my family (Camden, 12 and Lila Grace 10) along with my sweet Golden-doodle, Sadie. We love to travel and are Disney fanatics. We will be traveling back and forth from ECU in the fall for some PIRATE FOOTBALL!
