Mrs. Lauren Bock
fifth grade teacher
My name is Lauren Bock! I recently just got married on New Year's Eve, so you may know me better as Lauren Newbold. I am 27 years old and have been living in St. Louis for almost 4 years now. I live in South City with my husband and puppy, Goose. I love finding new places to eat, hanging with family and friends, and cooking. I also am enjoying decorating our new house and completing projects with my husband!
I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in May of 2013 with a bachelors' in Elementary Education.
Before coming to PCS, I worked as a paraprofessional for two years in my hometown. While I was there I worked with K-3 RTI, 7th and 8th grade resource, and I also did a maternity leave in 2nd grade. I also helped coach high school softball, and I was the head coach for the high school dance team. I was lucky to learn many great skills and strategies from the students and teachers that I worked with in Staunton before coming to PCS.
I have been in 5th grade at PCS for three years now. I love working with the kids and my team. 5th grade rocks! Some of my favorite things we do in 5th grade is 5th grade camp, studying the solar system, and challenging Mr. Eames' class to kickball games and winning them. :)
