First Grade Teacher

Mrs. Lauren Kempf

This will be my third 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 10 years ago, I completed my Praxis exam to become certified in Elementary Education. I have prepared for your child by attending Math Foundations Training this summer which I look forward to implementing in my classroom this year.
