My name is Lauren Burdette. This is my 15th year teaching Kindergarten and my 11th year at Thurmont Primary School. I am super excited to be a member of the TPS team! I am originally from Mentor, Ohio and completed my student teaching in Kindergarten in Cleveland Public Schools. I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education degree from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. I've received my master’s degree in Reading Specialization from Hood College.
