Mrs. Lauren Scherling
Hello! I graduated from ASU with a BA in Elementary Education, and immediately started teaching at Black Mountain way back in 1996 in a first grade classroom. After that first year, I taught multiage (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) for ten more years. During that time, I earned my Master's degree, became Nationally Board Certified, and got married. In 2006, we had our son, and I took a year off from teaching. In 2008-2009, I job-shared and taught Language Arts in 5th grade. After I had my twin girls, I stopped teaching to care for them. In 2014, I came back to my favorite school to teach once again. Two of my three children still attend Black Mountain, and I just love this school!
I am an Arizona native! I grew up locally, went to ASU for my undergraduate degree and NAU for my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I have been teaching in the Cave Creek School District for 20 years, but this is my first year at Sonoran Trails Middle School and I am so excited to make math fun!
