Mrs. Laurel O'Dell

Welcome to 6th grade science at Reynolds Middle School!  This is my seventh year as a Prosper eagle, although I've been teaching for over 20 years.  While in Prosper, I've taught at Baker Elementary School, Rogers Middle School, and now I'm excited to call Reynolds Middle School home! I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station.  

My family and I live in Prosper, and my husband and I have four kids.  We have two kids attending college, one daughter attending Reynolds Middle School and one son attending Prosper High School.  Our family stays busy with band and team sports! 

As a teacher, I believe that education is about more than sharing knowledge with my students.  Teachers also impart values and characteristics that build lifelong learners.   I look forward to a great year with my 6th grade scientists!  


Absent or looking for notes?  

1. Check your child's Google Classroom page.  I post the daily lessons and any attachments.  You will need your child's log-in information to access some of the documents on it.

2. If you are missing any notes or handouts, check the pink 'absent bin'.  

3. ASK me if you have any questions. 




"It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with is to teach them to think, if that is possible, and always to think for themselves."  Robert Hutchins
