Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Lauren Young

Hello, hello! I'm Ms. Young, and I'm thrilled to be teaching 7th grade ELAR this year!

I have two degrees in ELAR, a Bachelors in English (concentration in Creative Writing) from the University of Houston and a Masters of the Fine Arts in Creative Writing, Editing, and Publishing from Sam Houston State University. Although this is my first year as a full-time teacher, I spent the two previous years teaching Theatre Arts through the Magik Theatre, and worked part-time as an essay specialist with SHSU's Academic Success Center. I look forward to working here at Garner and getting to know all my new students!
