Ms. Laura Heuchert
Welcome to ESOL 1 / Sheltered Reading 1. This is my fourth year at Willowridge High School and I am looking forward to a year of growing and learning together. I have been an English teacher since 1994. I have worked with English Language Learners since 2002. In addition to English, I also read and write in Spanish, French and German. I understand that learning a new language requires hard work and much effort.
I grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, and I have moved many times with my family before coming back to Texas in 2013. Living in Houston has been an adventure for my family, including my husband Mark, son Christian (24 years old), daughter Klara (21 years old), and 3 dogs-Ozzy, Taz, and Birdie.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and I know that 2021-2022 will be a great school year!
