Tinker

Hi there! My name is Lauren Tinker and I am so excited to be a part of another year at Acres Green. I am a Colorado Native and can't imagine not being able to use the mountains as my guide.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two kiddos- Oakley (4) and Sullivan (2).  We love to camp, swim explore new things, and read together.  I also enjoy reading (mysteries are my favorite), cooking, and playing tennis. 
I received my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado (Go Bears!) in 2011 and spent the first few years of my career teaching Kindergarten on Fort Carson Army Base.  I have been blessed to call AGE home for the past 8 years and have taught Discovery, 4th Grade, 3rd Grade, and Digital Literacy during my time here.  This is my 11th year teaching and I am thrilled to be able to spend it with such a fantastic group.
I can't wait to see what adventures this school year takes us on.  It is sure to be a great year!  Please feel free to reach out with any questions: lmtinker@dcsdk12.org
