Welcome to Mrs. Richardson's fifth-grade home page. I'm looking forward to the new 2016-17 school year.
My name is Laura Richardson and I am a fifth-grade teacher here with a great staff. This is my first year in fifth grade and I am excited for there is so much to learn, and to share, with each other.
I have been at Nunaka for a total of 12 years and did teach second grade for 10 years.
I am most proud of coaching 5th grade Battle of the Books this year for the first time. We took home 5th place ribbon and challenged other 55 teams! I also ran the school Spelling Bee and participated in the Math Derby.

I have four children that I adore and stay very busy and active with.
I have lived in Anchorage for over 30 years, although Homer area is my second home. I have a cabin there and spend most every summer there. I built it with my husband and continue to tinker on it while we try our hand
at gardening and fishing on our boat. Nothing is better than sunsets on
the beach with a campfire.
Teacher is my other passion, and having returning students come back to visit yearly is defiantly a thank you.
I love children and teaching and feel very lucky to be able to work as a teacher.
