Hello everyone. My name is Laura Browning and I am so excited to join the 5th grade team this year. I will be teaching Science and Social Studies. I will also continue as the Launch Site Coordinator. I have been teaching for 21 years. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hiram College in elementary education and special education. I completed my Masters Degree at Carson Newman University as a Reading Specialist. This summer I completed my EDS course work and have earned my Leadership Licensure. I am proud to say that my goal is to be a life-long learner! I have been married for 37years. My husband is a teacher too! We have six children and 8 grandchildren. My goal as an educator is to make learning exciting and to create students who are motivated to become life-long learners! I am very excited about this school year and look forward to learning from your very special children!
