Ms. Laura Paiz
Hello, I am now a 2nd Grade teacher at Belleview Elementary. Though this is my first 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 26 with 2 small children 3 & 4 and the other is 20, working full time in the grocery industry and attending college full time at Santa Fe College. 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.
