Hello Rocklin Academy families! My name is Lauren Votava and I am thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten at Rocklin Academy! I joined the Rocklin Academy family as a student teacher in Kindergarten with Mrs. Reno. I fell in love with all of the exceptional students, staff, and families at our school along with the amazing curriculum we teach.
I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Literacy from the University of Idaho. I am from Rocklin, California but my swimming career brought me to Idaho where I was able to compete on the women's swim team while completing my education. I started teaching swim lessons at a young age and believe that coaching swimming is one of the reasons I found my passion for teaching. To this day, I am still coaching swimming as a Head Coach for a local competitive swim team.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outside, exercising, swimming, baking, and hanging out with my family, friends, and puppy.
I feel honored to be working at such an amazing school and am looking forward to meeting all my Kindergarteners!
