Mrs. Lauren Collier

I have been teaching for ten years and love what I do!  I have teaching experience in third, fourth, and fifth grades, as well as being a Reading Specialist.  I graduated from Appalachian State University with an Elementary Education degree and a Masters in Reading Education.

My husband and I met at ASU, fell in love with the small-town feel, and never left Boone.  We have one son and a dog named Fawkes.

I couldn't ask for a better place to live and work.  Boone is what I like to call "God's Country" and Parkway School is the BEST place to be!  I'm honored to work with an excellent faculty and staff, teach wonderful students, and interact with the Parkway community.
