Mrs. Halsted

Hello!  My name is Laura Halsted and I have had the privilege of working at Mary McPherson Elementary.  This is my 11th year teaching Special Education.  I feel like this is home, since I spent my years in elementary school attending Mary McPherson, as well.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, and children with special needs have always had a special place in my heart!  I love the little things in life, including love that animals can give.  I have two amazing dogs and two sweet cats.  I have been married for ten years to my amazing husband, Mathew Halsted.  I look forward to this school year and working with the children!
