Mrs. Laurel Kress

Hello! I am so excited to be teaching fourth grade at JRE! This is going to be our best year yet!

A little about me. Last year, I arrived at JRE to teach second grade. Before that, I taught fourth grade in Great Falls for five years. I am originally from just north of there, growing up on a farm and ranch. I attended MSU Bozeman, graduating with a B.S. in Agricultural Education Relations, a B.S. in Elementary Education, and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. My husband and I have two wire-haired pointing griffons and enjoy going out hunting with them. 

I am absolutely thrilled to work with your students; every day is a fun adventure! I strive to help each student learn to appreciate, and hopefully even love, both math and reading. I have an open-door policy; you are welcome to come to class any day (following MCPS volunteer guidelines)! Please reach out with any questions or comments. I look forward to meeting you!
