Laura spent her early childhood growing up on a farm in Holmes County before moving to Yazoo City. She graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in elementary education and has experience teaching preschool, kindergarten, first grade and fourth grade. She came to FPDS in 2007. She and her husband, Johnny, have three children, who are FPDS graduates – Anna Laura, John Henderson and James. She is the proud grandmother of Luke West. They attend First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, and Laura enjoys cooking and gardening. “All of my children went through the Day School,” she says. “We loved it then, but I love it more now that I am teaching because I see first-hand how wonderful the teachers are. They are so dedicated. As a Bible teacher, I see just how much Bible they are taught. It is wonderful to see these children taught so much of God’s Word.”
