Lauren Hulit

Music Teacher

       Hello! I am a first-year K-1 Music Teacher at Rawlins Elementary School and I graduated this past May with my bachelor's in Music Education with a minor in Disability Studies from the University of Wyoming. I'm from Laramie, WY and enjoyed being involved in the Western Thunder Marching Band as head of the drumline for 2 seasons while also helping out with local music ensembles and an internship at the Cooper Center for the Performing Arts in Laramie. I enjoy finding ways to include multisensory learning techniques into my lessons to appeal to more learning styles of my students.

Music Classroom Rules:

  • Raise your hand and wait for the teacher to call on you to speak.
  • Respect yourself, friends, instruments, and materials.
  • Clean up messes.
  • Have fun!
