First Grade Teacher
Mrs. Lauren Kempf
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my 6th year teaching First Grade at Polenta Elementary. I attended Dowling College on Long Island, NY for both my Bachelor's Degree and my Master's Degree in Secondary Education. When I moved to North Carolina 13 years ago, I completed my Praxis exam to become certified in Elementary Education. I look forward to getting to know and working with your child this year!

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
