Mrs. Laura Arrowsmith

My name is Laura Arrowsmith and I’m excited to be teaching for my sixth year at Cool Spring with EL students!  I love learning about cultures all around the world and my favorite learning experience was living in China for four years.  I have been a teacher for over 20 years with many different age groups in China, Fairfax County Public Schools, and Loudoun County Public Schools.

My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in English from James Madison University and a Master’s Degree in Education from George Mason University.  I also received training in Reading Recovery as well as the Pathways Reading and Writing Program.

My husband and I live in the Cool Spring neighborhood and we have three children, one of whom is a 5th grader at Cool Spring. Our two oldest are at Heritage High School. On the weekends we love to hike, do service projects, and watch movies.  I am an avid reader and especially love to read biographies.

I believe that every child is a brilliant star and I look forward to helping your child shine!
