Ms. Lauren Whitaker

Hello, my name is Lauren Whitaker. I was born and raised on the east coast of Florida, in a small town called Fort Pierce. I graduated from Olivet Private School in 2004. After high school, I attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN, for my undergraduate degree. In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. After college, I worked briefly for the Tennessee Department of Treasury before deciding that I wanted to become a teacher. I taught for three years at Columbia Central High School in Columbia, TN. I taught for four years at Okeechobee High School in Okeechobee, FL. In May 2020, I completed my master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction. I am excited to join Thompson High School!
