Mrs. Lauren Wong
I am thrilled to join the Ram community as an art teacher this year! I’ve been making art my entire life, and have over a decade of teaching experience in the arts. I have also taught a range of high school English classes, including both AP Literature and Composition and AP Language and Composition, but art is truly my heart and passion. It is my sincere belief that art bridges the gap for many students, giving them the confidence and perspective to thrive in other academic areas. Every student benefits from an arts education, regardless of professional goals or ambition, because creativity and problem-solving skills are critical in all 21st century fields. That said, careers in the arts are not only highly gratifying and in demand, but are also often very lucrative, and all students deserve a chance to access their untapped creative potential.
When not teaching or making art, I am also very happily married to a fellow educator, and we are the parents of three awesome artists, ranging in age from 10 to 16. We also share our home with four canine babies, and one antisocial leopard gecko.
