My name is Laura Pekarek and I am from Cherryville, NC. I attended UNC Charlotte where I earned my BA in Elementary Education. After graduation I became a teacher at Costner Elementary School in Dallas, NC. While teaching first grade, I earned my Masters in Library Science from Appalachian State University.

I also enjoy many things outside of school such as teaching dance, running, my pet cats, plus spending time with my family and friends.
