Ms. Laura Waters
Hi, my name is Laura Waters and I am extremely excited to be a part of the Lincoln Academy community. This is my first year here, but it’s already feeling like home. I am a mother of three children. Well, two of them are adults now, and I have two grandsons.
I started my teaching journey in Durango, Colorado in 2001. It has been my pleasure to work with students ranging from 1st graders through 8th graders. I have taught several of those years, teaching in a multi-grade classroom. Teaching literacy (ELA) has been the majority of my teaching experience.
I moved to Arvada four years ago to open up more opportunities for my youngest son, who is now a senior at Arvada West. During those four years, I taught 6th-7th grade ELA/ESL in Denver.
I received a masters in Literacy, Language, and Culture with an endorsement of Teacher of Linguistically Diverse Population. Guiding students in both their academic and personal growth has been a blessing that is more than just a job, it’s who I am as a person.
