Hello! I'm Dr. Laura Drayton and this is my 18th year of teaching.  I have spent my entire teaching career at Van Buren.  I grew up in Pittsburgh and went to the University of Dayton for my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I also have a Master's Degree in Literacy Education from the University of Dayton and my Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Ohio State University. 

I currently teach 6th grade English and Reading on team 6A.  Please check Power School and Google Classroom as much as possible.  These resources will allow you to find copies of class handouts, information about assignments and due dates, as well as student progress.

In 2013, I received the Battelle for Kids "Celebrate Teaching" Distinguished Educator Award.  This award is given to highly effective teachers to celebrate how they help students achieve their highest potential.  It was quite an honor for me to be recognized by this national organization!

My husband and I were married in 2009 and have two beautiful daughters!
