Foundation / Grade 1 Teacher

Hello, my name is Lauren Chugg and this is my second year teaching Foundation and Grade One at Wantirna Primary School. I love creating a nurturing environment within my classroom for our youngest students to thrive in. Wantirna Primary School is so special to me, as it has a very close-knit community feel and all the staff have the opportunity to get to know every student well. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family.
