Lauren Tuttle

About Me:

My name is Lauren Tuttle and this is my second year at Sand Creek Elementary School! I have grown up in Highlands Ranch and love that I teach in the community I grew up in. I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver where I earned a BA in Human Development and minor in Elementary Education. I also have MA in Education in Teacher Leadership with a Reading Emphasis.

I love teaching! It's a simple statement that sums up my view. I love coming to work everyday and being with these incredible kids. They bring me joy and watching them develop and discover who they are as the year passes is an indescribable feeling that not many people get to witness. Thank you for allowing me the privilege to teach your child this year. It is a team effort and I thank you in advance for the all the hard work and support you give; I could not do this job without you!
