Long time educator Dr. Lauren Bauer has been named Principal of Trinity Elementary School. Deputy Superintendent Jason Golden and Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Schools Denise Goodwin introduced her to the Trinity staff.
Bauer, who is currently serving as an assistant principal at Franklin High School, began her career as an elementary teacher in Florida where she taught first grade, pre-kindergarten and third grade over a seven-year period before becoming a professional development and literacy coach. She joined Williamson County Schools in 2013 as the tiered intervention specialist and has been at Franklin High since 2016.
“Dr. Bauer has a strong elementary curriculum background, and she was instrumental in establishing the Williamson County Schools tiered intervention program for all of our elementary schools,” said Golden. “Not only is Dr. Bauer a strong instructional leader, but she is also someone who will build relationships with all stakeholders.”
With almost two decades of educational experience, Dr. Bauer says she is looking forward to returning to the elementary level where she began her career.
“I am honored to be named the principal of Trinity Elementary School,” said Bauer. “While it has been a privilege to serve the Franklin High community, I am excited to return to the elementary level where we begin to foster a love of learning. Trinity Elementary has set the standard for excellence, and I look forward to working with students, teachers and parents to continue this tradition.”
Bauer earned a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from Florida State University, a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University and a Doctorate in Learning Organizations and Strategic Change from Lipscomb University.
She will begin her new role June 3, 2019.
