Lauren Van Pelt
B.S. Early Childhood Education
Elizabethtown College '18
Hello and welcome to my online portfolio. My name is Lauren Van Pelt and I recently graduated from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout my four years at Elizabethtown College, I have had numerous hands on experiences in many diverse classrooms; includinng placements at inner city schools and in learning support classrooms. Through these placements, I have developed not only a passion for teaching, but a passion for making a difference in each and every students’ life. I aim to create a community of learners who value each other and are accepting of everyone.
Currently, I am teaching first grade at Fawn Grove Elementary School in South Eastern School District. During my time at South Eastern I have effectively planned and implemented lessons using the state standards and district curriculum. Additionally, I have collaborated with colleagues to present on innovative technology used in the classroom. I have also created interventions and behavior management plans for students who needed additional support.
I am certified to teach Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.
My portfolio is organized according to Charlotte Danielson's Framework for teaching. I have included artifacts demonstrating my proficiency in the following domains: Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professional Responsibilities.
Thank you for taking the time to view my portfolio!
