Lauren Rodriguez-Gregg is excited to be joining the FDES Family as the new School Based Instructional Facilitator! Mrs. Rodriguez-Gregg is passionate about fostering relationships with students, families, colleagues, and community members; providing a warm, safe, and engaging learning environment; and promoting equity and access for all through thoughtful differentiation, culturally responsive teaching, and a focus on social-emotional learning. She is looking forward to supporting the FDES administration, teachers, staff, and families as they collaborate to attain the LCPS vision.
This will be Mrs. Rodriguez-Gregg’s first year in LCPS and ninth year in public education. In 2007, Mrs. Rodriguez-Gregg received her BA, Elementary Education from Elon University, and in 2018, she graduated from George Mason with her Master’s of Education, Curriculum and Instruction. For eight years, she taught a range of elementary grade levels in Fairfax County and served on a variety of leadership teams and committees in her former school settings. During this time, she mentored GMU Teacher Candidates, modeled best practices including PBL and guided reading for colleagues and community members, and led a number of professional development experiences for and with her fellow teachers. She enjoys taking an inquiry stance when teaching and rolled out three year-long action research projects with her students. In 2019, Mrs. Rodriguez-Gregg was named “Outstanding Elementary Teacher” in her school, and in 2018, she received the “Outstanding Graduate Student” award in her Master’s program.
Mrs. Rodriguez-Gregg grew up in Purcellville and recently moved back to Loudoun County with her husband, Stephen, and two dogs, RJ and Winnie. Outside of school, she enjoys exercising, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with her family. She encourages families to reach out with any questions as the year progresses and invites them to follow her on Twitter. Here’s to a shining new year! #FDEStars
