Laura Adger-Barton: 3rd grade
I was born in Ohio but my mother said I had a shoe box of Texas soil under my crib and that I made it back here as quickly as I could. I grew up in Fort Worth and spent most of my school years in small private schools. For that, I feel very much at home with the small setting and close family here at Treetops. I spent many years in the restaurant business making my way from server to trainer to manager before I was able to complete my teaching degree. I graduated from University of Texas with honors and taught in Arlington ISD for 5 years before I was lucky enough to find Treetops. I lived very close to the school until February 2015 and so I have a very close connection to the community. My husband and I have a son, Liam, who is very excited to become part of the Treetops family this year.
I love my job and get a great deal of fulfillment from being with your child and helping them learn things that will carry them through the rest of their lives. Thank you for trusting me with your child and I hope you have a wonderful year.
I spent my early college career at TCC where I got my AA, graduating with honors and was inducted into the National Dean's List. I graduated with honors as a member of Phi Theta Kappa from the University of Texas in Arlington with a BA in Interdisciplinary studies in Early Childhood Education.
I was with Outback Steakhouse International for ten years while I worked on getting my teaching degree. I worked with Arlington ISD for five years and have taught Fourth and Third Grade before coming to Treetops in 2011.
My favorite color is green and I love to be outside in nature.
I spent a long time debating if I should be an Art teacher because I love to draw and paint. When I decided on general education I knew that I would incorporate my love of art into my daily lessons. You will see that your child will be artistic with their Reading and Writing lessons because it opens up a different part of the brain and welcomes the lesson in a different way.
It's Going To Be a Great Year!
