My name is Lauren Stapleton. I am the general education teacher in the classroom. I am a native of the Barrow County School System and graduated from Apalachee High School in 2011. I attended the University of Georgia and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Early Childhood Education in May 2015. This will be my second year of teaching at Holsenbeck. I am currently obtaining my Master’s in Education degree in Instructional Technology from Kennesaw State University, and my leadership endorsement. I love to be outdoors and active so on the weekends I usually go for a hike, run, or long walk with my dog, Daisy. One of my favorite things to do when I am not at work is to travel.
My name is Allyssa Frazier. I am the special education teacher in the classroom. I am also from Barrow County, and I graduated from Winder-Barrow in 2010. I attended the University of North Georgia and graduated with a dual Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and Special Education in May 2014. Recently, I have received my Master’s degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University. I am pursuing my Specialist’s Degree from Walden University. I got married in October 2015 and I have a dog and a cat (Georgia and Nala). I love coffee, good books, and laying out by the pool. I am so excited for everything this year has in store!
