My name is Mrs. Laura Kavajecz (pronounced kav - a - check) but you can call me Mrs. K if you want. I am originally from a small town just south of Duluth, Minnesota. I currently live in Ashland, Wisconsin with my husband Luke, our five year old son Jay and 2 1/2 year old daughter Nona. As a family we love to spend time outdoors fishing, hiking and enjoying nature. I also like to read, birdwatch and bake goodies in the kitchen when I have time.
I studied biology and chemistry at University of Minnesota Duluth and science education at University of Wisconsin Superior. I have taught for the past ten years in a variety of settings and at different levels of the education system. I worked on earning a master’s of science degree while doing so.
I joined iForward’s team of teachers in the fall of 2016 and am returning for my fifth school year! I have a great passion for teaching science and love working with students in my science classroom. I look forward to stepping into the amazing wide world of science with you!! We have lots to learn this school year!
