Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Lauren Holets and I am the fifth grade reading and social studies teacher! This is my first year teaching, and I am so excited to start at Grand Meadow! I was born and raised in Austin, MN and attended Riverland Community College for my first two years, then transferred to Winona State for another two years. I currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I enjoy shopping, reading, going for walks, and playing in the backyard with Winnie! I look forward to getting to know all of my students and their families.
