Miss Laura Ahlin
Hi everyone! My name is Laura Ahlin and I am so excited about going into my second year as a special education teacher here at Copper Creek!
I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Special and Elementary Education in 2022. I did my student teaching in a Middle School Behavior Support Program, as well as in a Kindergarten classroom. Last year at Copper Creek, I had the opportunity to work with students in Kindergarten, Third and Fifth Grade. I cannot wait to work with Second and Third Graders this year. I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment and be given the tools necessary to help them grow to the greatest extent possible.
A little bit more about me! I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, until I came to Arizona for college. Lions are my favorite animal, but dogs are my favorite pet. I am obsessed with The Muppets (my favorite movie is the original one!), but my all-time favorite movie is Toy Story 2. I love all the colors, but if I had to pick three, they would be pink, green, and yellow. My favorite subject in school was Social Studies, and I even got a minor in History when I was in college. Spring is my favorite season for the flowers and rain (even though too much rain doesn’t happen in Phoenix). I have played the clarinet since I was in middle school, and was even in the marching band at NAU.
I cannot wait for a fun and successful year of learning with the students at Copper Creek! Go Bobcats!
