I am Mrs. Laurie Loughery, and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year!
I grew up in Hinsdale, Illinois and moved to Indiana when I began attending Butler University. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Butler and have lived in the Indianapolis area most of my life.
My husband and I are the proud parents of 3 sons. Our oldest graduated from Purdue and works in construction management for a terrific company in Fishers. Our middle son graduated with a degree in Sports Communications from Indiana and is now working for USA Cycling in Colorado Springs. This group is a part of the US Olympic Committee and he is currently the Communications Manager. Our youngest son graduated from Indiana in May with a Finance/International Business degree and recently began his career in Chicago. I am very proud of my wonderful boys!
In my spare time I love to read, cook, watch classic movies, travel, and hike the Colorado Rockies with my family and friends. I am a huge Colts fan!
I am currently in my 21st year of teaching, and I have taught all grades 2 through 5 as well as gifted and talented. This is my 11th year teaching Challenge in Carmel! I love teaching gifted and talented children and tell my students often that we learn from each other.
