Hi my name is Lauren Cullen. I am a 1st grade teacher at Crystal River Elementary School. I started off teaching kindergarten and I am excited to work with 1st graders this year. I believe that all children can succeed and that relationships are key!
I have lived in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 20 years. The past 6 years I was in Vernal, Utah. I am so excited to be back! I am originally from New Jersey. College took me to Washington University in St Louis and I found that it was not close enough to the mountains. I graduated with a bachelors of science in business administration. My next stop was Snowmass Village. I have had many careers from baking, to catering, to insurance, and now I have found my forever career. I love teaching children. Summers I can sometimes be found working with the preschoolers at Blue Lake Preschool.
I moved to the mountains to ski. Like everyone else, I stayed for the summers. I love to hike, bike, inline skate, and to spend time with my rescue dogs. Most days you can find me hanging out with my 13 year daughter and my dogs.
