Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Laura Mathurin
I'm excited to teach 7th grade English for a 2nd year at Mercer Middle School!
I'm a Northern VA native; I attended Sully ES, Sterling MS, and Park View HS before earning my Bachelors degree in English and my Masters in Secondary Education at James Madison University (go Dukes!). My teaching career began in Fairfax County where I taught 7th and 8th grade English at Mark Twain MS in Alexandria and Rocky Run MS in Chantilly. After nearly 10 years with FCPS, I made the switch to LCPS and happily accepted a position at Mercer MS.
Because I live just a few miles from Mercer, you'll likely see me around the community with my husband and our 7-year-old twin girls, attending events at Buffalo Trail ES, checking out books at the Gum Spring Library, or enjoying a meal at Los Toltecos or Glory Days.
Parents, please access ParentVue throughout the school year to view student progress and to contact me. It is very important that students also access StudentVue regularly to take ownership of their learning this year, not just in English class, but in all 7th grade courses.
I look forward to a wonderful school-year of reading, writing, presenting, and problem-solving!
