My name is Laura Templer, and I got my Bachelor's Degree at Northern Illinois University in Family and Child Studies. I also got my Master's Degree in Elementary Education at University of Phoenix. I'm originally from Chicago, and I've been out here since August 2011. I still can't get used to this heat! My favorite things to do are to spend time with family and friends and hang with my two Golden Doodles! I also enjoy going on hikes, working out, and playing sports.
Over the course of my career, I have taught 3rd and 5th grade. I am on my sixth year of teaching, and this is my fifth year teaching 3rd grade, and I absolutely love it! My teaching career began in Mesa, Arizona, and then I moved onto Gilbert, Arizona. This is my first year as the Team Lead for 3rd grade, and I am involved with the Safety Committee. I am also in the process of getting my Gifted Endorsement.
