Hello sixth grade parents!

Welcome to room 26, my name is Lauren Gillies. To get to know me a little more, I have lived in Arizona for almost fifteen years now. I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Continuing at Arizona State, I received my Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. I have the cutest and craziest black lab dog named Napa. My boyfriend and I love to go exploring and four wheeling. Road trips are our favorite! 

I have been teaching here at Patterson Elementary for the last six years, all of which have been in sixth grade! I really have enjoyed my time with the older kids and love being able to share their journey into junior high with them. 

Our school motto is "PAWS-ITIVE" Expectations to RAISE the Bar. Our students are expected to be respectful, be responsible, and be safe! We work very hard to prepare your students for their continuation into junior high. I work on making them accountable for themselves and their job as a student, showing integrity at all times, and excellence in everything they do. I also like to have fun and joke around with them to make sure we have a memorable year!
