Mrs. Laura Gibbs
My name is Mrs. Laura Gibbs and I am excited to introduce myself as your child's W.E. Chalmers Elementary 2nd grade math and science teacher.
I am a devoted wife to my husband Tony and a loving mama to my daughter Emily. Tony is a wonderful father who spends his time working, taking care of a herd of cows, and playing with our daughter Emily. Our daughter Emily is in first grade and likes all things pink and purple. Emily is my helper, my joy, and my precious daughter. Emily and I enjoy reading at night and talking about her day. Emily works hard in school and I am so proud of her.
To know more about myself it is important that I describe my life previous to now. I am the second youngest of six children and I come from a family of teachers. My mama, 3 aunts, and uncle were at one time all teachers. I remember when I was young going to my mama's classroom and helping her with decorating and making her classroom a positive learning environment. It was these experiences that led me to embrace the teaching profession.
I first started my adult life in college and graduated from NMSU, in 2001 with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a major in Business Computer Systems. It was within 2-weeks of graduating that I booked a flight to Seattle Washington and started my career with The Boeing Company. I worked as a Database Administrator for the next 5 1/2 years. I was mentored by a wonderful coworker who I owe all that I learned to. This coworker aspired to be my guide and teach me to be successful.
While working, I received my Masters of Arts in Education from the University of Phoenix. moved to New Mexico and married Tony. As a family, we moved to Whitesboro, Texas and built a house. In the last 12 years, I have taught Kindergarten 3 years, Third Grade 6 years and this is my 3rd year in second grade.
Thank-you parents for all the positive and warm joy that you and your child have and will continue to bring to our classroom. Thank-you for purchasing all the supplies for your child and do know the supplies will be put to good use.
