Lauren_Teplin_Smaller.jpgLauren Teplin - Teaching Associate

Lauren Teplin feels so lucky to join the welcoming and creative CWC family this year. She is currently enrolled at Loyola Marymount University in order to obtain her multiple subject credential and masters in bilingual education. Lauren first got the teaching bug when she taught English in Cusco, Peru for 6 months. Soon after starting, she knew she had found her passion. She hopped across the Atlantic and taught English in Granada, Spain for the next two years. Experiencing a new culture through language, food, and festivals was a life changing experience. Lauren loves to call Los Angeles home because she can get those same benefits by meeting people from so many backgrounds who also call L.A. home. Her favorite thing to do is to try new foods, but she also enjoys dancing salsa, yoga, and rollerblading.
