About the Teacher

My name is Lauren Whiting, and I am so excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher. We are going to have a fantastic year! I attended Belhaven University for four years. While attending Belhaven University, I played collegiate volleyball and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I am from Southaven, MS, where I have lived my whole life. Some of my favorite things include: sports, the beach, Disney, and spending time with my family and friends.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. The best way to reach me is through Remind or by email. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!
