Meet Lauren Goldberg
Lauren facilitates the school’s curricular review process and works with division heads and teachers on broad curricular initiatives around writing, inquiry and framing the essential questions that guide Foote students’ learning. She co-chairs the Professional Development and Collaborative Mentoring committees to support faculty in their ongoing growth and learning. Lauren has been a teacher, administrator and educational writer for 30 years, including 12 at Belmont Day School. She holds a B.S. in history from Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, an M.A. in cognitive psychology from the University of Massachusetts and two post-graduate degrees from Lesley University: a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study and a Ph.D. in developmental psychology and linguistics. She splits time between New Haven and Boston, where she and husband Larry recently became empty nesters.
As their final art project, ninth graders reproduce an impressionist oil painting of their choice after studying the history and techniques of the movement.
