My name is Laura Williams and I am a 21 year veteran in education. I spent the last 15 years teaching kindergarten and first grade in the Hickory Public School system. I am delighted to be in my second year working for Catawba County schools where my children have both graduated!
I am a happily married mother of two boys and growing up with all girls, these boys were a special treat to raise! My family is my most favorite things on earth. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with them and other loved ones, as well as laying on the beach, gardening with my favorite music, and taking Saturday afternoon naps. :)
I will treat your child like I treat my own children: with love, excitement, and discipline. I love what I do, and kindergarten is my passion! I will get down and play on the floor with your child (might not get back up very easily), as I am a child at heart. And I wear that label proudly.
The best way to communicate with me is through Class Dojo. I typically answer messages within a couple of hours.
If you have time to volunteer help, occasionally, I will be asking for parents to come read to children, help with class parties, or even cut materials we will be using in future lessons.
