Lauren Gallagher LOVES math!
That’s why she has been teaching it for 20 years.
Lauren grew up in Colorado and received her undergraduate degree in mathematics and her teaching license at Colorado State University.
After graduation, Lauren found her niche: teaching middle-school and high-school math. This love of teaching and learning led her to complete her Masters in Education.
Today, Lauren teaches middle-school math at a charter school Parker, Colorado. In addition to teaching, she also enjoys tutoring middle-school and high-school math students, as well as ACT and SAT prep.
When she’s not teaching or tutoring, Lauren enjoys spending time with her family (She has 3 kids and 3 dogs.), playing games, going to plays, and traveling.
