Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts, Theatre & Dance Elementary Education for Early Childhood to Sixth ESL Certified
Welcome to our classroom, Huskies! My name is Laura DeJesus and I am a second grade teacher at Madden Elementary. Madden Elementary is truly a second home for me- My husband, Coach DeJesus, is our Madden PE Coach and all 3 of our children attend Madden Elementary! I grew up in Sugar Land, TX and am a proud graduate of Clements High School in FBISD. I went on to graduate from The University of Texas in Austin with a BA in Theatre & Dance. Teaching second grade is a dream of mine and I am so fortunate to call Madden my home. My first year of teaching became a dream come true when I was named a 2021-2022 FBISD Rookie Teacher of the Year! When Coach and I are not teaching, we love bike riding with our 3 children and water skiing on Lake Travis. A hobby you may not know about me- I love to SING! You may hear me singing around my classroom. I approach every day in our classroom with the motto "CHOOSE HAPPY!" In addition to teaching the foundations of Math & Science, I like to teach the joy of finding the positive in each day and love watching my students grow into the best that they can be!
My conference time is 1:55-2:40 p.m.
