About Me:
Coming soon...after a class activity!

What I Love about Teaching:
 I love teaching because it allows me to continue to learn and grow as a person.  As a teacher, each day is different! It's fun to have a career that is always challenging me to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.  I love supporting and encouraging students to also challenge themselves when it comes to learning.  It is so rewarding when students see the growth they have made throughout the school year.  

How to Contact Me:
Room - 146
Phone - [phone]
email - lauren.tipton@stargateschool.org (best way to contact me)

**You can also write a note in your child's agenda.**

Blogging:
 I will be creating three blogs (which are highlighted below).  They cover Social Studies/Science, Literacy, and Math.  All of my blogs support RSS, so you can watch just the blogs that interest you by subscribing to them on the blog pages.

Grading:
 I keep all grades on Infinite Campus which you can access from the menu.  All other information is on my blogs.
