Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Laura Crawford
Welcome to 1st grade! I am so excited to be your teacher this year. My name is Laura Crawford, and I teach first grade in the Ankeny School District.
My education in the field of teaching began at the University of Iowa where I earned my BA in Elementary Education, with endorsements in both reading and language arts.
When I am not at school I spend my time with family and friends. I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors, and watching the Hawkeyes!
If you have any questions at any time please feel welcome to contact me. I look forward to working with your family and getting to know you better! First grade is a wonderful year for student learning. By May, you will be amazed at what a wonderful reader, writer, scientist, and mathematician your child has become!
