MCS Teacher of the Year 2020-2021

Laura’s unique past teaching experiences make her a role model in the classroom.  She brings experience, compassion and structure to her students based on her time in a tough downtown Milwaukee school and culturally isolated and impoverished school in Hawaii.  Laura does not pick the easy professional route—she has always forged ahead following where her heart takes her.  She has students contact her through social media and give her updates on their current life.  She has taken the toughest class at a previous Milwaukee school and turned it around, so much so, that she agreed to “loop up” with the same students the next year.  Her students and their families see that Laura is genuine in her respect and love for them, which creates a strong foundation from which her students can go “above and beyond” in academics as well, as in life.
