Dear Little Ram Families,
My name is Lauren King and I am so excited to introduce myself as your new Kae Avenue Elementary Principal. I was honored to serve as the assistant principal here at Kae last year and cannot wait to continue to work with you all this year!
A little about me- I live out in Licking County with my husband Tyler, step-daughter Clara, cat Ruby, and dog Bernie. We like to sing, dance, go camping, ride our bikes, and fish. I started my career as a 3rd-grade teacher and over the years was in and out of the classroom as an intervention specialist, gifted teacher, and instructional coach.
Throughout my career, early literacy has always been a passion of mine. The ability to read well promotes equity, opens the door to endless possibilities, and serves as the foundation for the rest of a child’s life. At Kae Avenue, our goal is to help all of our students become active readers by the end of 1st grade. We do so through research-based, high-quality reading instruction and targeted interventions for all grade levels. We also promote a strong emphasis on social-emotional instruction as our young students learn how to respectfully and courageously interact with the world around them. We are extremely proud of the success our students have experienced and continue to experience at Kae.
2020 has already been quite a ride. Times are tough right now but so are we! This year is all about bravely facing challenges to develop a better future. As a team of families, teachers, and community members, we will do just that while making sure our kids get the best education possible! We are Little Ram Strong! Feel free to reach out to me any time through email

I cannot wait to continue to get to know you all this year,
Kae Avenue Elementary
