Teaching since:
1996

I have been an elementary teacher since 1996. I am currently a teacher at Great Oak School in Tomball, Texas. You can check the faculty page at Great Oak School's website for my full bio. I am a member of Houkulele, Houston's Social Ukulele Club. I have attended Uke Teacher Training courses with Kevin Carroll in Austin. I follow and use James Hill's ukulele in the classroom curriculum and supplement with whatever music interests my students have and I am continually learning new things, attending uke workshops and music conferences and festivals like the Kerrville Folk Festival to continually improve my music and my teaching.

Texas Music Educators Association

Begun in 1920 as the Texas Band Teachers Association, the Texas Music Educators Association is an organization of over 10,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. TMEA is comprised of five divisions: Band, Orchestra, Vocal, Elementary and College. On behalf of its members and Texas schoolchildren, TMEA carefully monitors the actions of all state decision-making bodies on issues affecting fine arts instruction in Texas. In addition to many member benefits, TMEA offers professional development opportunities for its members with Region workshops and especially with its annual Clinic/Convention. TMEA supports the future of music education by offering scholarships to music education majors and by sponsoring the Texas Future Music Educators, an organization through which high school students interested in careers in music education learn more about what to expect in their college education and future careers.

Laura is a very thoughtful teacher and gently guides me along in my learning of ukulele. She is always growing in her own practice and finding new ways to teach. I have learned so much from her and enjoyed it at the same time!!
