About Lauren Barkes

Hi! I am Lauren Barkes. Currently, I am on staff with Deborah at the Teach Preschool Children's Studio. In The Children's Studio I teach class day to day and I also handle the administrative side of the school. I have been with Deborah in the classroom for about 5 years! I am currently in school to get my associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. I feel so honored to be apart of such a wonderful community in the early childhood field. I like to describe myself as a life long leaner, dreamer, and creator. I strive to continuously be building a life-long love for learning in my students!
