Hello! My name is Lauryn Metje and I am so excited to be your child's 1st grade teacher this year! This is my 5th year teaching. I have taught Special Education, Kindergarten, and this will be my 3rd year teaching first grade.
I grew up in southern California until I was 12 years old. Then my family and I moved here to Ariozona. I have a twin sister and a younger brother as well as two pets, a cat and a dog. I attended middle school and high school within the Deer Valley School District. After high school I went to Grand Canyon University where I graduted with my Bachelor's in Elementary and Special Education and now get to be a teacher in the Deer Valley School District. :)
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, reading, watching movies, and traveling when I can.
At Sunset Ridge, we support students emotionally and academically, preparing them to be lifelong, well-rounded, critical thinkers.
