Years at NGFS: 7
Education: B.A. in Mathematics, Duke University
As Laura begins her sixth year as an Upper School Math Teacher, she cannot wait to meet her new students and to continue her mission of getting everyone excited about math! Even when students do not share her enthusiasm, she loves “those moments when they [the students] finally master a concept after working hard for it.”
Laura has taught math at Greensboro Day School (2004-2006) and at the National Cathedral School in Washington, D.C. (2006-2012). When she came to NGFS in 2012, she appreciated “the small community, the willingness to support each other, and the respectful student body.”
In her free time, Laura loves baking, as well as eating, sweet treats. She also enjoys gardening, day hiking, solving logic puzzles, and spending time with her husband and two sons.
