My name is Laura Ackley.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. All of the success in my life and career can be attributed to the fact that God is with me, and I have chosen to honor Him with my life. He is my everything.

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart who serves as the Youth Pastor in our local church. We have one daughter, and she brings nothing but joy into our lives.

I have been a Kindergarten teacher for the past four years, but I will be teaching FIRST GRADE next year. I am excited for the new challenge and opportunity to grow as a teacher. ¬†I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Dallas Baptist University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach Early Childhood through 6th grade, and I obtained my English as a Second Language certification. Upon graduation I was awarded on behalf of the education deans of independent colleges and universities of Texas, the Preservice Educator of the Year Award. While teaching at my current school, I received¬†the “Rising Star” award.

I enjoy children, camping, social gatherings, reading, decorating, and coffee.
