About Me

Hello! Welcome to my 5th Grade Website.  My name is Laura Gilmore and this is my twelth year as a teacher.  My first year of teaching was as a first grade intern in Clayton, Missouri.  I spent two years teaching third grade in St. Charles, Missouri and seven years in fourth grade here at West Clay.  This will be my third year as a fifth grade teacher. 

Education has always been a passion of mine. At an early age I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My undergraduate work was from Indiana State University. I also have my Masters in Education from Ball State University. My love of learning does not stop. I spend a lot of down time keeping current with my profession.

I celebrated my seven year anniversary this summer to my wonderful husband Justin.  We enjoy sports and outdoor adventures.  We have been skydiving, snorkeling, four-wheeling, zip lining, and white water rafting.  Kaiser is our six year old German shepherd. He keeps us busy, especially in the winter jumping through snow piles.  Surprisingly, he has a love of water and will stay in it as long as possible.  

My family is very important to me.  I have four sisters and loving parents. I am lucky to be an aunt of three nephews and two nieces. We always have fun going to museums, cooking, and being messy.  I enjoy playing sports, reading, and spending time with friends in my free time. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.

Welcome!
