Mrs. von Gunten

Hello! My name is Lauren von Gunten and this will be my first year teaching at Lone Mountain and my eleventh year teaching special education. I graduated from Concordia University in Irvine with a Bachelor's Degree in History. Upon moving to Arizona, I completed my Master's degree in Special Education. I began my teaching career in the Cave Creek Unified School District and had the opportunity to teach in both the resource and self-contained environments at the elementary and middle school levels. The past several years, I taught at a private special education school, but longed for the close community and support that CCUSD has to offer. I am so glad to be back and a part of this community once again!

 I have a wonderful daughter who attends Lone Mountain. During our free time, we love to do crafts, hike, boat at the lake, and ride our UTV. I am so excited to see the amazing things that you will do this year!
