Mrs. Laurie Richmond
Hello! My name is Laurie Richmond, and I’m one of the 4th-grade ELAR teachers at Boyer. I'm a University of North Texas graduate and have taught at the elementary level for the last 20 years.
I consider myself a servant leader and have always loved working with children. I get immense joy from serving and supporting them as they grow and learn. I am a firm believer in establishing relationships, supporting/teaching collaboration, and am dedicated to meeting students' needs through differentiated instruction. My classroom environment could best be described as challenging but nurturing. I'm deeply passionate about my profession and spend a good portion of my personal time reading, staying current with new technology, or creating fun and engaging lessons/activities. I don't look at teaching as my J.O.B.--it's my calling.
When I'm not at school, I love to spend time with family and friends. I've been married for 35 years to my ever-handy and supportive husband, Reggie. We have two grown children and a sweetly stubborn Chihuahua named Cocoa. Our son, Cameron, lives in Colorado and is a ski instructor and landscaper. Our daughter, Madison, is a Registered Nurse at Parkland Hospital. We enjoy spending time outdoors and especially love to garden, hike, bike, kayak, and fish. We are also college football fanatics...Geaux Tigers!!
I am blessed to continue my journey with Prosper and look forward to another amazing year!
Be Boyer! Be Brave! Be YOU!!
Ms. Dunlap (Science/Social Studies) and Mrs. Williams (Math) are my partner teachers.
