Teacher of the Month - Dec. 2021
In cooperation with the Mayor's office and City Council, the Rotary Club of Okla. City recognizes an outstanding teacher in our community.
Lauren Querbach has been a first grade teacher at Wiley Post Elementary School for 2 years, and in the classroom for 8 years, one of which was in Thailand.
She graduated from OU and volunteered as a reading tutor while there.
Lauren believes in student-led project based teaching and creates an equitable and joyful classroom for her students that centers on their lives, interests and experiences. Lauren’s practice of meeting each child where they are led her to assist the administration in creating and implementing a multi-grade skill based reading program for kids in her school.
She loves reading, cooking, and spending time with her partner, Joe and their dog, Zoey exploring the world when she is not in the classroom.
