Degrees and Certifications:
First Grade Teacher
Mrs. Lauren Kempf
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! This will be my 5th 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 12 years ago, I completed my Praxis exam to become certified in Elementary Education. I look forward to working with your child this year!
