• My name is Lauren Ottesen. I am thrilled to be your child's second grade teacher this year! I am a first year teacher at Melzer! I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, OH this past May with my bachelor's degree in Inclusive Special Education. I also completed the Autism Spectrum Disorders certificate during my time at Miami. I grew up down the road in Park Ridge, so I am excited to be back in the area! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and cooking. I am excited to be surrounded by all of the amazing teachers at Melzer!
