Lauren Denis


Lauren is excited to be teaching 6-12th grade English at Fusion Mission Viejo! After graduating with a BA in English from Michigan State University, Lauren moved to Chicago to complete her internship year on the South Side of the city. She then moved back home to Michigan to continue her career, closer to friends and family, teaching 10th and 12th grade English at a public school in a suburb of Detroit. While teaching virtually during the COVID19 pandemic, Lauren also obtained her MA in Teaching and Curriculum from MSU. Lauren then relocated to California following her fiancé’s job and is excited to continue building strong student-teacher relationships and fostering a positive classroom community in a 1:1 setting.

When she’s not teaching, Lauren loves watching MSU football and basketball (Go Green!), reading psych thrillers by the pool, and walking on the beach. Lauren also loves to cook and try new restaurants. Feel free to send her any of your favorite local suggestions!
