Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I'm Lauren Herz and I teach 6th grade Science for team Voyagers! I am originally from North Carolina, but have lived here in the Valley for more than half my life. I earned a BS degree in Biology and Medical Technology from Bridgewater College and worked in the hospital laboratory at Augusta Health as a Clinical Laboratory Technologist for 15 years. I have 2 daughters - Sydney (13) an 8th grader and Camryn (11) a 6th grader at Wilson Middle School. Once they entered pre-school, I began realizing that my true joy in life was to be in the classroom with them and teach. I went back to school and earned a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Mary Baldwin College. I have worked the past several years in the Waynesboro City School division in every grade from Pre-K through 5th. I am excited to start my 4th year at BMMS teaching Science.
I love playing and reading with my daughters, swimming, clogging, shopping, crossfit, and sleeping! My daughters and I live with our 2 sugar gliders in Fishersville.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm looking forward to a great year with your Middle Schooler!
