Hi! My name is Lauren Burch, this is my first year at JNE! I have taught in the Houston area for nine years. I was raised in Fort Bend ISD, and am so happy to be back! I have been departmentalized in reading for the past four years, and self contained for the other five. I am happily married to my husband, Andrew. We have an adorable Shih Tzu named Archer, and a cat named Dexter. When I'm not teaching, you can find me drinking decaf coffee and reading a book! I am so excited to be here teaching at JNE with all the amazing staff and students!
