Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Lauren Tyler
My name is Lauren, and I graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, TN, with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 2012. Prior to teaching, I worked in nonprofit management and grant writing. I started teaching at MMS in 2017, and I've grown to really love my District 7 family. My main priority as an educator is the mental, emotional, physical, and academic well-being of my students. Research confirms my belief that young adolescents do not learn well when they don't feel safe and accepted. I strive to create an environment of mutual respect and understanding in my classroom.
I'm not married, and I don't have any children, but I do live with my six-year-old golden retriever mix, Moose! He and I love exploring all of the Upstate's outdoor spaces. One of our favorite activities is visiting nearby state and national parks. I also enjoy reading, writing, knitting, listening to podcasts, and any activity that gets me outside.
I look forward to being your student's ELA teacher this year!
