Ms. Laura Paiz

Hello, I am a 2nd Grade teacher at Belleview Elementary.  Though this is my 3rd year in 2nd grade, I have taught Kindergarten and First grade for about 26 years between Florida and California.  I am a mother of 2 sons, one is 28 with 2 children 5 & 6 who attend Belleview Elementary and the other is 22, working full time in the grocery industry.  I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Child Development, Teaching certifications in California and Florida and a Masters in Educational Leadership completed December 2016. I enjoy teaching primary grades because I feel the foundation for reading and number sense begin even before our children enter school and that foundation must be solid for continued growth and development. I look forward to a team effort with you and your children to help them reach their full potential as I believe that children are our future and should have the best education and preparation available.
