Laura Nelson – Bumblebee Room Teacher

Hi, my name is Laura Johnson. I am the lead teacher of the Bumblebees. I have been married to my husband, Jef, for thirty-five+ years. We have two grown children. My son is working on his PhD in Philosophy. He is married and currently lives with his wife in Germany. My daughter is the mother of my two beautiful grandsons. She is married and is blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. I have a lot of hobbies, too many my husband says. A few of them include writing, reading, and gardening. I absolutely love my job. I adore the children in my care and find it very satisfying to watch them learn and grow. I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life. Thank you so much for allowing me to take care of your precious children.
