Hi there! My name is Lauren Thapa and I am so excited to teach at Barton Creek Elementary this year! The quote below is from my all time favorite book, Anne of Green Gables. I like to use it as my mantra while teaching. As you explore this site you will learn a lot about me, but I will give you a little nugget for free here on the home screen: I am not perfect. Surprise! I will make mistakes this year, as will all of us! Luckily, these mistakes give us opportunity to think creatively and critically. In fact, we could not learn without mistakes! So this year, I promise to help your child take advantage of these learning opportunities, and start each day with a clean slate. I am looking forward to partnering with you this year!
