Lauren Swindells

Prekindergarten Teacher


Welcome to my webpage! My name is Lauren Swindells and I love  teaching Preschool at Gilbert Elementary School in Augusta. We have a wonderful group of educators and students at Gilbert.

I graduated from Thomas College in 2005 with a degree in Elementary Education. Since then, I have worked in the early childhood field and have been teaching at Gilbert School since 2011.

The Augusta Pre-k classrooms use Tools of the Mind curriculum, which supports growth in both academic and social areas. Tools of the Mind is based on Russian psychologist, Lev Vygotsky and his philosophy. The curriculum guides students in mastering self-regulation and cognitive skills. It is amazing to see growth in preschoolers from the beginning to the end of the year!

 My husband and I live in Gardiner with our two beautiful daughters. Our oldest daughter plays field hockey and our youngest daughter is passionate about riding horses. We enjoy spending time with them and watching them grow. When I am not teaching, I love going to our camp and reading!

Please feel free to contact me at anytime and I look forward to communicating with you!

Thank you for visiting!
