Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Laura Arrowsmith

My name is Laura Arrowsmith and I’ve been teaching at Cool Spring with EL students since 2014!  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. Two of our children are Heritage High School graduates and the other is in 8th grade at Harper Park Middle 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!
