Name: Lauren Hurd, Grade 3 Teacher
How long have you been teaching? (and how long at All Saints) This is my third year of teaching and my third year at All Saints.
What is the best part of your job? I love interacting with the kids on a daily basis. Being able to see them grow throughout the year not only as learners, but as little humans is truly amazing.
If you had a superpower for the day, what would it be? The ability to clone myself so there would be one of me for each student in my class and then an extra of me that could be on a nice beach somewhere relaxing.
What is your favorite kind of music? I listen to all kinds of music - whatever comes on the radio works for me.
Do you have any pets? Will be getting one soon - a white golden retriever in March.
Do you have a hidden talent? If yes, what is it? I do not think I do - maybe playing softball, I am pretty good at that.
What is your favorite type of book to read? (or favorite book title) I love to read books that have a message especially if it is a book I feel I can read to my class.
What did you want to be when you grew up? I always knew I wanted to do something with children coming from a big family so teacher always seemed like the best option.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I would live in Hawaii during the winter months and here in Connecticut during the summer months.
What was your first job? Babysitting and a camp counselor at the Wilton YMCA.
