About Laura

I have a degree in Education, with an emphasis in English. I have been a substitute teacher for the past three years, in all subjects, with all grade levels. I have done my best as a sub to assist the students in anyway possible. I have also been helping my nieces and nephews, ranging from age 5-12, with their work and anything else they need to learn or know.

For about three months in 2013, I was a long term substitute for two Junior and three Senior classes in High School. I loved the experience and can't wait to have another great one. I look forward to helping students in whatever they need and work with them to help them come up with lessons that work.
