My name is Laura Wellhoner and I teach both advanced and ESE-inclusion Earth and Space Science. I am a product of Marion County Public Schools and live in Ocala with my husband, my three children, one dog, and our seventeen chickens. My passion for science is rooted in a love of nature. I am continually fascinated with the systems that enable our planet to sustain life as well as the mechanics at work within the universe. It is awesome!
I am so very proud to be a part of the Osceola Middle School family and I love working with kids. Your child will take a hands-on approach to science this year. My goal for the year is to guide your child to see that science is fun and relevant in everyday life.
Over the course of my teaching career, I have taught US History and Earth and Space Science here at OMS. I have also taught Intensive Reading at Belleview Middle School. One of the many things I love about teaching middle school is how enthusiastic about learning your children are! They make every day different and interesting- and they keep me hopping!
I am so excited to be a part of your middle school adventure this year! Let's work together to make it a great one.:)
