Lauren Rubini

    1st grade
    I joined the Whittier staff in 2012 as a first grade teacher. Prior to that I worked in Boulder Valley School District as an elementary math coach serving our Boulder bilingual schools, University Hill Elementary and Columbine Elementary. In my role as a math coach I was able to support teachers from Kinder to 5th grade to provide engaging and coherent math instruction. 
    I earned my BA in Elementary Education from Boston University. I have a Master’s degree from CU Boulder in Literacy and have certifications in ESL and bilingual education. Additionally, I have my Education Specialist degree and am licensed as a principal. I have taught pre-school through 5th grade in both bilingual and IB schools. 
    I strongly believe in healthy lifestyles that support mental, emotional, and physical well-being and growth. I enjoy integrating practices and lessons within the classroom that encourage whole, healthy, and happy beings.
