Lauren Pruneau has her Master’s Degree with dual certification in Elementary Education/General Special Education from Southern New Hampshire University. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Business Management from Keene State College in Keene New Hampshire. Being a mother to two young children also fuels her passion for education and ensuring students are given the necessities they need and deserve. Having a child with speech and language disorders, Lauren has firsthand experience in working with special educators and understanding the pros and cons of the system currently in place, and is very excited to be on the board of NHLDA to do what she can to help children grow in the best environment and have the best tools and guidance possible. Lauren is looking forward to teaching first and/or second grades and helping them achieve their academic, social and emotional dreams and goals.
