Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laurie - 3rd Grade
Welcome to my classroom! I have been teaching for over 20 years and have taught Kindergarten through 4th grade. Before coming to Salemburg I taught in Charlotte for 10 years and Wilmington 2 years as well. I received my teaching certification from UNC-Wilmington and also have a degree from NC State University (GO WOLFPACK!!). Mr. Laurie and I have two daughters, Haley and Kirsten.
The 3rd grade year is very important year for your child to grow as a reader. I tell my students they should be reading at least 20-30 minutes every night. Time spent at home reading is important in building reading stamina and will help to grow their vocabulary. Increased reading stamina and a strong vocabulary will help your child be well prepared for the reading EOG they will have at the end of this school year.
Thank you for your support in helping your child do their best in 3rd grade. Let's make it a GREAT YEAR!!
