Lauren Keppler

Lauren has a pragmatic, learner-centered philosophy that she has applied in the classroom and in her work with other educators.  She enjoys making things grow, from the plants in her garden to the skills and understandings that she cultivates in her students to the competencies that she nurtures among educators.  In her growth-centered classroom, Lauren reinvented school curriculum and assessment practices to better plan, teach, and measure student learning and skill development.  She brings that philosophy and expertise to Paridad.
