Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Lauren Bookin
My name is Ms. Bookin, which is quite fitting, because I love books! Some of my favorites are Charlotte's Web, Stella by Starlight, and The Watsons go to Birmingham, 1963. I grew up in Westchester, and then went to college at the University of Delaware. When I graduated college, I moved to New York City and went to graduate school at Hunter College to earn a dual masters degree in general and special education. After teaching in the city for over ten years, I decided to return to Westchester. I couldn't be happier to have found a home at Springhurst! Though many things about me have changed, I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in fifth grade, largely in part to my fantastic elementary school teachers. For proof, click on the link below. You also might like to know that now I LOVE tofu!
I look forward to helping our students learn and grow. It is going to be a fun year!
