My name is Laura Byrd. This is my ninth year teaching. I taught second grade in Alief, at Boone Elementary for three years. Subsequently, I took a ten years hiatus from teaching to stay home and raise my children. This is my sixth year back in Fort Bend. My first two years in Fort Bend were at Commonwealth Elementary teaching First grade. I am very happy to call Sullivan my home now! I am a graduate from the University of Houston with a degree in Elementary Education.
I have been very happily married for 23 years. We have a tenth grade boy named Dylan that goes to Elkins High School. I also have a seventh grade son, Austin that goes to Fort Settlement Middle School, and a fourth grade daughter, Julia, that goes to school right here at Sullivan. My hobbies are yoga, riding my bike, and spending time with my family.
