I have been teaching for ten plus years. I loved Phillips as a parent and love it even more as a teacher. Teaching is my second career and I am so happy I finally am doing what I always wanted to do. I have an amazing husband, Roger and four grown children. Kasey, Kirk, Kathryn and Kameron. I live in Altoona with my two dogs and two kitties. I also have a home in Arkansas. Reading is my passion, love the outdoors, and spending time with family. There is no more rewarding job than being a teacher.
My name is Lauren Rohweder. I have my B.S. in Elementary Education, endorsements in early childhood education and health. I also have my M.S. from Iowa State in Elementary School Counseling. I have worked for Des Moines Public Schools for the past 15 years. I started with the district as an elementary school counselor. I then moved into teaching fifth grade and fell in love with this age. Fifth graders are AWESOME!
I live in Ankeny, Iowa with my husband, Brett, and my three kids, Tanner, Carter, and Malerie. In my free time I enjoy cheering my kids on with their sports and reading on my Kindle.
