Our Teacher - Lauren Tozzi
Lauren Tozzi has been teaching at the Crown Hill 3-5s Cooperative Preschool since 1998. A native of Southern California, Lauren has lived in the Seattle area since 1980. Lauren brings 25 years of experience, training and education in the field of early childhood education. She is excited about her role as a preschool teacher, since the formative years (birth to five) are critical and provide the foundation for children's success in school and life. Even with the breadth of her experience, Lauren continues to grow as a teacher through workshops, teacher in-services, courses in early childhood development and other training opportunities.
Lauren brings an appreciation of diversity to the program through storytelling, foreign languages and a commitment to pro-social development through cooperative, respectful interactions with adults and children.
In addition to her work at the preschool, Lauren is a frequent workshop leader at teacher conferences and an enthusiastic and tireless advocate for children, working families and teacher professionalism. She also serves our broader community as a volunteer and mentor.
