Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page. I am Lauren Jensen and I teach 7th grade science on the Guardian's team.
I grew up in Spruce Pine and attended Mitchell High School. While in high school I participated in cheerleading, dance, drama, and student council. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a BS degree in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in math and science. My first year teaching I taught 7th grade science at Newton Conover Middle School. I then taught 7th and 8th grade math, science, and math 1 at Eastfield Global Magnet School. Year three I came to East McDowell Middle and taught 7th grade math and science. Now I am in year four and have finally decided to settle down and call East Middle my home. This is also my second year as the cheerleading coach here at East.
