Degrees and Certifications:

I graduated from UAB with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education in 2007. I graduated from UNA with my Master's Degree in Elementary Education in 2014.

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.

 

Experience

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.

Your child has a username and password that is the same as you have ued for Lexia. The username is lastname.4digits@students.sccboe.org and the password is asd123. You will need to download the app if you are on a device or you can open it by downloading it onto a computer. The link to download it is: https://products.office.com/en-us/skype-for-business/download-app. Or you can have your child access it through their Microsoft Outlook account.  Go to portal.office.com then login in using their same username and password and then click on the Skype Icon. It is an S. I hope to see them at our next meeting.

    Each week an agenda for the week will be posted on this website. This will let you know what they will need to do for the week.

    Password: asd123

    There are two login buttons. They will need to click the LOGIN with CLEVER. 

    They will have to type it in twice. 

    Part Two will be a comprehension story and activity. This will be in a link that will be uploaded to my website weekly. They do not have to print any activities. They can be done on your own paper. 

    (There will be an online assessment each week that will need to be completed. This will be explained st the bottom.)

    Math:

    We have a few Math Book lessons that we have not finished this year. These can be done in their Math book. (If you did not pick up your child's Math Book you can use this link to and use the pages from this book.) I will have videos posted for those lessons each week for your child to do with the assignments. They may watch the video and then do the practice in their book.

    The students will need to practice Fact Flunecy on Moby Max for a total of 50 minutes a week. Once signed in they will go to the Fact Fluency tab and then they will just practice.
