Mrs. Laura Gaylord

Please go to the Star Middle School website to access the remote learning packets for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.


My name is Laura Gaylord and I teach 6th-grade Writing as well as 7th-grade Reading and Writing.

I am delighted to have recently joined the Star Middle School staff and I look forward to meeting you at fall conferences. 

This is my 28th year of teaching and I've had the great fortune to experience many roles in the school setting. Besides being a general education teacher, I've served as a math facilitator, science specialist, and reading facilitator. I have also coached "Fit for Life", Science Pentathalon, and Math Olympiad.

My husband and I have been married for 28 years. We live in Eagle with our daughter who is a Junior at Renaissance High School and Dolce, our golden retriever.

I find great joy in sharing my sense of curiosity and my love of learning with my students. My greatest reward is when students are enthusiastic and engaged in thinking and learning. I strive for this daily. It is my privilege to be your child's teacher.
