Lauren Hansen

Lead Preschool Teacher

My name is Lauren Hansen and I am so excited to be your child’s preschool teacher at Carlsbad Country Day School. I was born here in San Diego. I graduated from Baylor University with a BA in Elementary Education and a teaching certification for Early Childhood. I have taught all different age groups including fifth grade, second grade and most recently, Kindergarten. Although I enjoyed teaching at the elementary level, I found my true passion teaching preschool aged children. My goal as a teacher is to provide a space where my young students can think, question and create. I prefer hands-on activities where my students can truly experience the content that they are learning and have found that by letting them take ownership of the classroom, they really enjoy coming to school each day!

I like to say that teaching is my profession, my hobby and my greatest passion but when I’m not in the classroom, you can find me at the beach or spending time with family and friends. I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
