Meet Your Teacher:

Hello! My name is Laurie Hunkler and I teach 6th grade English/Language Arts (ELA) at Van Buren (VB). This will be my tenth year of teaching and my sixth year at VB.

Education:

I graduated from Ohio University in 2008 with a Bachelor's degree in middle childhood education. While teaching, I completed my Master's degree at Wright State University and graduated with my Intervention Specialist license in 2011.

At Home:

I absolutely love my job and couldn't imagine doing anything else! However, when I go home my focus is on my husband and two children. My six year old son will be entering into first grade and my three year old daughter will start preschool this year. When I am not focused on my family, I enjoy reading and watching Fixer Upper on HGTV!

 

 

**I am also coaching 7th grade volleyball at VB this year and couldn't be more excited!!**
