Hi, I am Laura Gatten. Welcome to 5th Grade! This is my fifth year teaching in Tri-Valley Schools, and I am blessed to be a part of the Dresden Elementary family.
I am a proud alumni of Ohio University, where I received my Bachelor's in Middle Childhood Education (4-9). I live in Zanesville with my husband and my daughter Sara, and I also have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson. When I'm not teaching 5th Grade Language Arts, I also work as a wedding photographer. In my free time, I am a hiker, a kayaker, and a lover of adventure. I look forward to exploring Reading, Writing, and life, together in our Language Arts classroom!
