Lauren Houseknecht

Welcome to my page!  My name is Lauren Houseknecht and I am thrilled to begin my eighth year in education, and third year at PHS, with the 2018-19 school year.  My husband and I live just up the road in Celina and have enjoyed settling into this amazing community with our growing family! This fall, I will be teaching US Government and AP Human Geography, as well as Old Testament History (Fall) and New Testament History (Spring). 
I am a proud Texan, grew up in Allen and had family farmland in McKinney, so I have really seen this area grow! I began studying History/Education at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX and finished my degree with teacher's certification at the University of Texas at Dallas.
