Ms. Laura Lee-Walrond
As I was growing up, teachers saved my life in so many ways that it's impossible to count them. In the middle of all the craziness of my family, I noticed that the people who lived the life I aspired to all had more education than my parents. I decided that I needed to figure out how to work this thing we call "school." Teachers and counselors along the way helped me do that, so it's no great surprise that I became a teacher myself. I learned how to learn and how to pursue various credentials. At this point I have my Bachelor's in Liberal Studies, Master's in Education, National Board Certification, and a variety of endorsements on my Washington State Teacher credential including Language Arts, Social Studies, ELL, K-8 and Career and Technical Education.
I love what I do every single day because we are all better together than we are on our own. Whether I'm working with VITAL students in PSSC's accelerated credit recovery program, or developing our Teaching Academy, I get to work with amazing students and colleagues learning to navigate life and learning.
