A little bit about me...

Hello. My name is Laurie West Corkran and currently I teach fourth and fifth grade AWC at Taylor Ranch. I have also taught second and third grade. The reason I love being a teacher is that you have to keep learning yourself. I’m amazed at how much I learn from my students every day! 

 

I have had other jobs besides teaching. I have worked in business, and even spent time in the Marine Corps. My husband Stephen and I started our own business, Big Sky Electric, which is a business partner of TRS.  My favorite job though has been teaching.   

 

must love school because I have "graduated" from the University of South Florida several times! I have a Bachelor's in Business Administration, a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, with a minor in Primary Education, a Master's in ESOL (teaching students with English as a second language), and a Graduate Certificate in Gifted/Talented Education. I am currently working on my Phd in Philosophy.

 

I love animals, and I adopted two kittens and brother and sister, this summer. I also love the beach, traveling, and writing in my spare time. My favorite hobby has got to be reading, though. I love to read all kinds of books, especially science fiction. My favorite children’s books are the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, and  My Great Aunt Arizona by Gloria Houston. 

 

Thanks for reading about me, and I hope to see you soon… at the “Ranch!” 

 

I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.
