Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Laken Cortese

Hello everyone! My name is Laken Cortese and this will be my 7th year teaching and 6th year teaching 3rd grade! This is my first year at Lowes Island and I'm so excited to join this community! I'm originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated with an Elementary Education/Special Education degree from Slippery Rock University. I will be getting married this November so my soon-to-be new last name will be Mrs. Abretski! I love traveling, reading, hiking, and trying new restaurants. 

Third grade is such an exciting year full of growth and I am looking forward to meeting all my new students! We are going to have a wonderful year together here at Lowes Island.
