Mrs. Lauren Rachel Kalvans
Hi my name is Lauren Rachel Kalvans and I am super excited about starting my teaching career at Kino. I go by my middle name, Rachel. My passion is assisting, supporting, and guiding young people not only academically; but also, socially and emotionally. I spent several years mentoring junior high and high school students. I also spent nearly two years in Latvia working with orphaned teens encouraging and developing them for success in life inside and out the orphanage. As an educator, I feel I have found a career path that will give me purpose and feed my love for teaching kids.
I have a bachelor's degree from Arizona State in Organizational Leadership. I am excited to share 21st Century learning and skill building with my 7th and 8th graders this year. These are skills that students will use for the rest of their lives in school, in work, in daily tasks.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Millie. My husband and I spend a lot of time outdoors and traveling, but we cherish our time at home cooking and baking. I also have a deep love of college football, Roll Tide Roll!
