Lauren Palmiere was born and raised in Eastchester, New York. Ever since she can remember she wanted to become a teacher. Throughout high school, Lauren worked as a camp counselor and art director at a country club in Greenwich, Connecticut. After high school, Lauren attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Throughout her 4 years at Marist College, Lauren participated in a Duel Degree Program where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology as well as two teaching certifications, general education and special education.

After graduating Marist College in 2013, Lauren began graduate school in the fall to earn a Masters Degree in Literacy Studies. She wanted to learn more about how children learn to read and what strategies can be used when learning literacy. In May 2016, Lauren received her Masters Degree in Literacy Studies.

In the fall of 2013, Lauren also began her teaching career at PS 8 in the Bronx, NY. Lauren taught 4th grade, in a self-contained environment for 3 years. This opportunity provided Lauren with the chance to learn how to provide students with tools they need to be successful and reach their potential. She focused on teaching mathematics, reading, writing, social studies and science to students with various needs and abilities. As a part of the self-contained environment, Lauren took the 4th Grade Common Core Standards and created differentiated tools to help her students meet these standards. As a result, Lauren has witnessed many of her students, ranging with various needs and disabilities, succeed in ways they never thought they could. At PS 8, Lauren took on many extra roles as a grade facilitator where she led grade inquiry work, curriculum mapping and writing and implementing IEPs (Individual Education Plans).

Lauren was extremely lucky to join the PS 527 team in the fall of 2016 as the 3rd grade special education teacher. Over her years at PS 527 she has enjoyed building an amazing 3rd grade curriculum to meet the various needs of all her students. Lauren values all of her children’s learning styles. She feels passionate about helping her students reach their goals in and outside the classroom. In the fall of 2018, Lauren began to pursue a second Masters Degree in School and District Wide Leadership.

Lauren is very excited for another amazing year in 3 rd grade, working with the amazing PS 527 community!
