All About Mrs. Gaspard
My name is Lauren Gaspard and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Groves Elementary. I am originally from Lafayette, LA. My husband had a great job opportunity in Houston, TX, therefore, we relocated to Humble, TX in June 2016. We have two children. My son, Zane, is 10 and my daughter, Olivia, is 7. We love being able to spend every afternoon together and going to the park on weekends.
I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in Early Childhood Education and obtained my Master's Degree in Educational Technology Leadership from Northwestern State University. I taught in Louisiana for nine years before moving to Humble, TX. I have taught Kindergarten and Pre-K. I absolutely love the little ones!
I have always believed that Pre-K and Kindergarten are extremely important years for children. I feel that my biggest job is to teach children to love school. In my classroom, I work hard to build a sense of community among students. I expect my students to treat everyone with kindness and respect. I believe it is important for children to be able to work together. I also love using whole brain methods in my classroom. These methods use motions, along with words, to help students understand concepts. I believe that children should be talking and moving in order to learn. I want them to learn, as well as have fun!
