I'm Laura. I've been teaching Spanish for more than 18 years, finding ways to captivate students so they’ll share my love of Spanish and want to become fluent! Each of the 4 different schools (private & public) where I taught in Kentucky, South Carolina & Georgia required that I develop my own curriculum and create my own resources. Quality activities were hard to find!
I spent countless hours creating relevant and meaningful elementary and middle school resources that would engage students and get them speaking. They loved the word searches, bingo games and speaking activities so much that whenever I'd announce that we were about to do one, I would hear a resounding "Yes!" I realized that if my students were excited about these activities, others would be too.
I hope that by making these activities and resources available through my TeachersPayTeachers store, I’ll enable you to have more time to focus on the aspects of teaching that you love and less time on creating materials. I want to make your job easier by equipping you with meaningful and fun activities that build the language skills of your students.
When I'm not creating resources and tutoring Spanish, I am usually running, cheering for my favorite football team (Clemson), looking for the best Mexican food or sitting on the beach with my husband. We have four grown kids (25, 23, 22 & 20) and will be adopting a puppy very soon. My passion for exploring Spanish-speaking countries has led me to many fascinating destinations in Spain, Mexico and Peru.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading my blog and that my resources will make your time with your students more effective and fun! Come back often!
