Lauren Burke, (6-9) Teacher
Lauren was born in Cincinnati and attended Miami University as an undergrad. After living in Oakland, California for 5 years, Lauren returned to her hometown. She has always enjoyed working and learning from young minds and after her children started attending a Montessori school, she knew that pursuing Montessori education was exactly what she wanted to do.
Lauren is a Montessori-credentialed educator who has been immersed in the world of education. She has coordinated summer programs for children 4-14; facilitated training for clients focusing on implementing healthy, inclusive play and improving school climate; managed a team of caregivers for Children’s for Children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital; and developed individualized curriculums for children.
For the past year, Lauren has been deeply steeped in New School culture and is excited about joining the (6-9) team and having her son, Kynan, attend TNSM as a second grader.
Along with traveling and playing with her family, some of Lauren’s favorite activities are hiking, gardening, and baking.
