Name: Lauren G.

Describe what you do in one sentence.
I work with school districts across IL and TN in helping fill teacher vacancies with certified teachers, increase students' academic outcomes, and streamline district processes.
What excites you most about working at Elevate K-12?
Making connections with new clients every day, working with my energetic and motivated peers, and submersing myself in a wonderful culture and career path.
What's a "normal" day like for you at Elevate K-12?
Every day I consult both new and current customers about their current school district challenges. Whether it be a challenge to find a certified teacher and fill a vacancy, struggling/failing students who need small group intervention, or streamlining HR, Technical, or Financial processes during the year.
What do you enjoy most about our culture?
Everyone is working towards one common goal; helping school districts and their students find high-quality education irrespective of zip code. Everyone works together and helps one another, no matter what the ask. We all wear multiple hats and pick up the slack where needed.
Elevate K-12's mission is to bring high-quality instruction to all students, no matter their zip code. What do you like most about impacting students in this way?
As a former teacher myself, I was able to impact about 30-50 students a year. Now, working at Elevate allows me to impact over 300 students a year. As someone who grew up in the education space and works towards a common goal of helping others; this is my life's true mission, and this is why I love working at Elevate!
Describe your best moment at Elevate K-12. Be specific!
It has to be surpassing my yearly quota this past May and selling one of the largest deals in the company, year to date.
Tell us a little more about who you are - what do you like to do?
In my spare time, I love to work out, take long walks to the lakefront, and read. Health and fitness are two things that are extremely important to me. I run my own businesses on the weekends; personal training and an all-organic meal prep company called Simple Staples. I enjoy cooking every day and trying new recipes. I also enjoy cooking healthy food/meals for others which in return makes them feel good as well.
Thanks, Lauren G.
