This is Ms. Lauren’s first year at P.S. 261 and she is super excited to be here! Ms. Lauren has been a school librarian in Park Slope for the past two years and before that was the librarian at a midtown law firm.  Ms. Lauren received her bachelor degree from Union College in History and has master’s degrees in both History and Gender Studies from Northeastern University and an MLS degree from Pratt. Ms. Lauren lives right here in the neighborhood with her husband, two sons and an elderly pug named Ed.  She enjoys hanging out with her kids, doing yoga, going to the beach, and of course, READING!
