Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lauren Ward



Welcome Back!!

I graduated from North Carolina Wesleyan College, with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I grew up in Rocky Mount, NC, and still live there with my husband, our two boys Cannon (7) and Mixon (3), and one fur baby Brunswick. I love to watch movies, cook, and spend time with friends and family.   This is my 11th year teaching here at Glendale - Kenly and 1st year in 5th grade.
