About Laura

Laura with her VIC-20When I unwrapped that Commodore Vic-20 computer Christmas morning of my 3rd grade year, little did I know my destiny would be sealed. It wasn’t just a computer I received for Christmas; I received the freedom to create; to inquire; and to teach. I never looked back. From that moment on, I knew that learning went beyond sitting in straight rows and turning in assignments. Learning was limited only by my own imagination and grit. My life experiences have been a product of that spark created at nine years old.Former middle and high school English, Journalism, Reading, and Yearbook teacher, Instructional Technology Coach, Ed Tech and IT Director, and now Executive Director of Innovation & Design. Also serving as SDCUE President.
