Mrs. Laura Carter

I am married to my best friend his name is Brent. We got married on March 26, 2010. We had a beautiful baby girl, Cora Ann, on June 18th, 2019.  We have enjoyed every second of this wonderful new adventure of parenthood. I love teaching and could not imagine doing anything else. I love to come up with creative ideas to help the students learn in their own ways. I look forward to meeting with any of my parents and would be happy to answer any questions.



I have taught 12 years at Odenville Intermediate School. I have taught 3rd and 4th Grade. I love both age groups and look forward to teaching many more years in 3rd Grade.
