Hi, I'm Ms. Loren. I started teaching at Hope & Play in 2022 and absolutely love it! I have the privilege of teaching one of our VPK classes, where every day is a fun adventure in learning and growth.
My husband and I have been married for 11 years and we have three amazing boys: Nolen, Hunter and Maverick. We also have a playful golden doodle, Jack, who keeps us all on our toes!
My educational journey began at UCF, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Communication with a minor in business in 2009. After working in various fields, I discovered my true passion was in education, especially with young learners.
I decided to return to school to pursue a Professional Teaching Certificate in Elementary Education. In addition, I earned my certification as a Childhood Development Associate, specializing in preschool age children. It's a role I take to heart, knowing the importance of these early years in shaping a child's future.
What makes my connection to Hope & Play even more special is that my three boys have all walked through these preschool doors. Our family has been a part of the Hope & Play community since 2017, and it truly feels like home.
I feel so fortunate to be part of this program, where I can share my love for learning and watch these young minds bloom and thrive!
