Lauren Houseknecht

Welcome to my page!  My name is Lauren Houseknecht and I am thrilled to begin my tenth year in education, and fifth year at PHS, with the 2020-21 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 AP Human Geography and Bible History (Old/New Testament).  I have taught Government, Economics, World Georgraphy, ELAR and Career Prep in past years.
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. In my spare time, I love traveling, running, and curling up with a good book.
