My name is Laurin Willoughby. I absolutely love teaching! I've known I wanted to be a teacher since 2nd grade. It is truly my passion and calling. I feel so blessed to teach at AES. I couldn’t ask for a better place or people to work with. I graduated from the University of Memphis in 2009. I love getting to know all of my students and watching them grow physically and academically. I believe the way to prepare children for success is to nurture their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning! I also believe all learners are different and it is my job to find how they learn best and accommodate my teaching to their needs.
I am from Newbern, TN. My husband and I moved to Memphis 7 years ago, and we enjoy living here. We are the proud parents to our sweet baby girls, Livia and Lailee! They have made our lives 100% complete and brought us so much joy! We have an amazing 9 year old Lab named Addy! We got her as soon as we starting dating and she is very special to us! In our free time, our favorite thing to do is to make memories with Livia and Lailee! Whether that be going on new adventures, playing outside, going to the zoo, playing dress up, riding bikes, traveling, taking pictures...etc we are always up to something! We also enjoy going to Grizzlies and Titans games! I love shopping, going to the spa, eating healthy, exercising, blogging, date nights, and photography. Our family is so important to us, so we go back home as much as possible to visit.
