Meet Lauren

I'm so glad you found Fifth in the Forest! I'm Lauren- a full-time public school teacher turned part-time private school teacher. I've been blessed to get to know both worlds really well! My experience ranges from kindergarten (hello learning to read!) to 6th grade literature (hello reading to learn!)

No matter where I am, literacy has my heart. It is my passion to put real, enriching literature in the hands of students. I've seen classrooms transformed and hearts opened because of a good book!

When I'm not in the classroom you can usually find me:
  • Creating literacy content for YOU
  • Teaching my own children (ages 6 and 3)
  • Eating new, yummy food with my husband OR
  • Traveling and exploring!

Thanks for stopping by!
