A very warm welcome to you and your child! My name is Laura Fullmer and I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I have taught third graders, first graders and kindergartners and I am so very happy to be starting my second year with 2nd grade! I am a graduate of the University of Florida and earned my master’s degree in elementary education from the University of Phoenix. My husband and I have two children– a son at the University of Utah and a daughter at BSU. I believe that together as parents, child, and teacher, we make an important team and I am eager to get to know you.
I will work hard to provide a warm, caring and positive environment for your child. I believe it is my duty as a teacher to provide meaningful and engaging lessons in order to show children the joy and value in what they learn. Educators are not only teachers of important subject matter, but of life skills and personal responsibility.
My ten years at an arts-magnet school has shown me the value in integrating the arts with core curriculum. We will be using visual art, drama, music and movement in many ways this year.
I am available anytime to talk, listen, or to answer any of your questions or concerns. The best way to reach me is through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCHOOL SUPPLY TIPS
Students in my class will NOT need batteries or a pencil box.
Crayola or Prang brand watercolors are the best and brightest.
A plain wooden ruler is easiest to use.
