Laura was born and raised in southern California. She earned her bachelor’s degree in sociology from Cal State Fullerton, and her multiple subject teaching credential from Whittier College. Laura has 20 years experience as an educator. She began her teaching career in the classroom and then moved her classroom home in order to homeschool her four children for a period of ten years. Through that experience, she witnessed her children explore and grow in their individual interests, especially in the arts. Next, Laura taught in private elementary schools and has delighted in building strong relationships with her students and their parents.
Laura recently decided that since three of her four children are adults, it seemed the perfect time to share her experiences with other homeschooling families. Laura is excited to team with iLEAD Exploration as an educational facilitator and come alongside families to help and encourage them on their educational journeys.
