    Lauren Collins, Diversity Director at Near North Montessori School

She is a trained SEED facilitator and skilled presenter. Prior to her current role, Lauren was an Early Childhood Administrator and Diversity Coordinator at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.

She went on to serve as the METCO Director in Weston, Massachusetts, where she was responsible for the longstanding desegregation program supporting over 180 Boston students. She partnered closely with teachers and administrative teams to center equity and inclusion via professional development and curriculum support.
