Mrs. Lauren Bentley
Welcome to First Grade at CPS!
My name is Lauren Bentley, and I am so excited to be teaching at Cartersville Primary School this year! I am entering my fifth year in education, and I am so thrilled to be serving in the community where I was raised. I attended Kennesaw State University and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education as well as a Reading Endorsement. I am passionate about creating a learning environment where students feel respected, cared for, loved, and valued so that they realize their importance and potential and can achieve their goals. I focus on developing meaningful experiences that engage students and make academics exciting so that they look forward to learning.
My husband, Derek, and I have two wonderful boys, Brayden and Eli. Brayden is so excited to be a Purple Hurricane entering Kindergarten this year! Eli will be in Pre-K next fall. Our family greatly enjoys traveling and seeing new places! We are Georgia Bulldog fans and love all things fall and football!
I look forward to a wonderful partnership with you as parents and guardians to positively impact your children and encourage growth both socially and academically.
It's going to be a GREAT year!
