About Laura

For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. I am a creative and resourceful teacher with proven ability to enhance students’ performance & respect for learning. I have effectively dealt with students with multiple learning differences & learning styles. I am an enthusiastic & committed teacher with a natural ability to appreciate and inspire children and co-workers. Documented & quantified success in providing activities & materials that engage & challenge students.

I am a Nebraska Certified Teacher with a Field Endorsement for Grades 4-9 and Specialized endorsements in Language Arts and Social Studies. As a published author, my passion for literature and creative writing is shared in my teaching. In addition, this skill is paired well with my background in Humanities and the Social Sciences.

Before going back to school to earn my BA in English (with minors in Bible/Humanities/ and Social Science) and my Master's Degree in Teaching, I was a Title I Instructional Paraprofessional in an urban elementary school for ten years. I specialized in Reading Intervention and Assessment. I am currently a "preferred" substitute teacher for many of the Omaha District Schools.

I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you or student in their academic success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions concerning my teaching philosophy, qualifications, or to schedule lessons.
