My name is Laura Duenas and I teach first grade at Rocky Mountain Elementary School. I am originally from California and moved to Colorado in 2012. I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, Long Beach. I also hold a Master's Degree in Reading Education from California State University, Fullerton. I taught kindergarten for three years and this is my second year in first grade. The best part of teaching is witnessing my students become stronger readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, thinkers and friends.
I live with my husband and our furry friend, Lucy. My hobbies include spending time with my family and friends, watching movies, running, reading, attending concerts and traveling.
