Hello My Name Is...

Laura Farmer

I am a 5th grade Math teacher at OES.  I have taught a total of 19 years in Hamilton County with 10 of those years being at Ooltewah Elementary.  I love spending time with family, friends, and my 2 Chocolate Labs, Carli and Coco.  I also enjoy serving as a youth leader at Silverdale Baptist Church, traveling, photography, and playing tennis.   I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching (1996) and a B.S. in Exercise Physiology (1995) from East Tennessee State University.  I am highly qualified in all subjects 1-6 and in Science in grades 7-8. Before coming to Ooltewah Elementary,  I taught for 8 years at East Ridge Middle School in both 6th and 7th grades Math, Science, and Social Studies so I have a unique perspective of where our 5th graders are heading and the skills they will need to be ready for their 6th grade year.  I feel it is extremely important  to develop positive relationships with students and parents and create an environment that encourages students to ask questions and share their thinking with confidence.  My goal is for students to develop problem solving skills that will help them be successful in many areas of life.
