Ms Tolbert
Hi!  I'm Lauren Tolbert, aka Ms T.  I'm thrilled to be a part of Longfellow HS and the unique, project based learning that we all participate in!
Prior to becoming a science teacher I worked for seven years as a chemist, so I am used to taking a hands-on approach to problem solving. Even something as simple as a walk outdoors can unlock a lot of questions and learning opportunities.  Scientific understanding is a valued skill in today's workplace and I enjoy helping students gain those skills.  Considering that all the students at Longfellow are parents, it's also a great time to reconnect to the amazement about the world that we all had as children, that child-like wonder is a great inspiration to our investigations.
In my spare time I love being outdoors with my family: gardening, camping, biking, swimming, hiking, and traveling.  Whenever possible I try to relax with a good book, especially anything by Margaret Atwood or John Irving.  I also enjoy the Twin Cities thriving music scene, spicy food, and cheering for the Vikings! (even though my husband is Packers fan...)
