Laura works with children because she believes it is one of the most important jobs a person can do. She sees herself as an aid to their development who can help them build the strong foundation they will need for the rest of their lives. Teaching is a humbling experience, in which the adult is growing and learning through shared experiences with the children. Through babysitting and her career in early childhood education, Laura been working with children since 2003. She finds it natural to connect with young children and has the ability to be patient and to meet them where they are. Laura enjoys helping parents feel comfortable opening up and partnering with her to best support their children. Outside of school, Laura loves spending time with family and friends, camping, hiking, cooking and baking. She loves sharing food with others. She also volunteers at her church to support children’s programs, social events and nursery services.
