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!
