My name is Lauren Demarest, and I was born and raised in Rock Hill, SC. I graduated from Winthrop University with a degree in Early Childhood Education, and graduated with my master's degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College. I am truly passionate about teaching and give my whole heart to the students in my class. This will be my ninth year at Kinard and I work with an amazing team of professionals who focus on the individual needs of our students while providing them with a supportive environment rich with resources.
Eight years ago, I married my high school sweetheart of sixteen years. We have a little boy named Landon who is 5 years old and another little boy named Cooper who is 2 years old! I enjoy spending time with my family, kayaking, camping, reading, and putting my toes in the sand! Teaching is truly my calling and I am looking forward to working with your family this year!
