Hello Rookies! My name is Lauren and I am a primary-junior teacher who is just beginning occasional teaching in the GTA. I enjoy facilitating classroom discussions about contemporary issues and current events. I am interested in taking a couple of AQs in the new year, including Special Education, Librarianship, and Reading (I would love to hear about your AQ experiences). When I’m not on the clock as a teacher, you can find me reading a book, hanging out with my dog (cute pooch to the right), or catching up with the latest episode of Damages. I look forward to sharing and learning from all you rookies out there. Find me on Twitter @Hughes_Lauren or post a comment on the blog.
