Ms. Lauren Ethridge
Welcome! This is my fifth year at Cibolo Green. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Special Education and endorsements in English, Reading, and Social Studies. I worked at the USM Gulf Coast Autism Project as an instructional assistant for 2 years and as a Special Education teacher for 2 years. Not only did I educate students, but I was part of a group that trained teachers from all over the state in best practices for working with students who have Autism. I then moved to a public school where I taught 4-6th grade special education for 2 years. This will be my 9th year of teaching and my 5th year working in a general education classroom.
Three years ago, I started working on my masters degree in school counseling and mental health counseling. I have one more year to go and am excited to switch from academics to emotional health. I believe it is important for teachers to enter the classroom with the understanding that there is more to a child than their academic achievement.
I have a 12 year old son who is a Tex Hill Tiger. In our free time, we like to spend time outside (biking, hiking, camping), watching super hero movies, and eating delicious food! During the summer, I also love to travel. I am looking forward to a great year with you!
