Lauren Canaan was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma and went to the University of Oklahoma graduating in the fall of 2011 to become a high school English teacher. She went on to teach Freshmen and Sophomores at Norman High School for three years. While teaching she went back to the University of Oklahoma and got her master’s degree in Reading Education with the hopes of becoming a Literacy Coach at the secondary level. When the opportunity arose for her to teach in higher education, she decided to start teaching at Randall University in the fall of 2016.
Since starting at the university her focus and commitment has been on helping Freshmen students succeed in their mastery of writing and reading. With that mission, she helped facilitate and start the new remediation courses on campus and implemented the Supplemental Academic Instruction (SAI) courses for English Composition I and Reading.
Lauren is married to Kyle Canaan, a Norman Police Officer. They have three daughters, Capri, who is ten years old, Cali, who is seven years old, and Carli, who is ten months old. They also have a household of pets: Rocky, the dog, and three cats, Rupert, Grendel, and Charli.
