Degrees and Certifications:

Lauren West

I am currently the Art teacher for Johnson Elementary. In the past I have taught Kindergarten, 5th grade and 6th grade at San Diego Unified and La Jolla Country Day. I have many years of experience teaching Art in Lakeside and National City.

My husband and I have two children, both fully grown. I enjoy spending time with my sister's four children as well. My hobbies include painting, drawing, hiking, camping and open ocean swimming. I love all types of travel.

I hope for all my art students to learn the skills they need to express themselves through their artwork and to have fun in Art!
