My name is Laura Schmidt and I teach 5th grade Language Arts at Walt Disney Elementary. My favorite activities are writing and reading -- so I teach something that I actually really love to do! I also love cooking, working out, and going to the movies. I am a busy mom of three energetic kids, plus we have a dog and a cat. I enjoy traveling and experiencing different places and I have lived in many different states and countries. Our family spends a lot of time going to sporting events and we try to get to the beach as often as possible. This school year is going to be a fun and eventful year!
