Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Lauren Swanson 


Hi! My name is Lauren Swanson, and I have been teaching for 5 years at Lakeside Academy, my home away from home. I taught 1st grade for 2 years, and I currently teach 3rd grade. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tn. I graduated high school from Girls Preparatory School (Go Brusiers!) and college from UTC with a bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending my time with my family and volunteering in youth ministry. I'm so excited about the 2018-2019 school year.
