Laura grew up in Northern California and has lived in NE Portland for the past two years. She worked for Portland Public Schools as a substitute special education assistant teacher for the past year. While it was a fun experience, she felt ready to settle down at a school and she is very happy to be here. Laura received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon in Communication Disorders and Sciences.
Her long term goal is to pursue speech pathology and continue to work with kids. She studied abroad in France in 2012 and traveled in Europe for a few months. She hopes to travel again and possibly take her speech pathology career abroad. She has worked at numerous summer camps and loves being in a creative and warm environment. In her free time, she loves to draw, paint, go to concerts and hike.
