Welcome to First Grade! My name is Laura Bowser. My husband John and I, our son Ben, and our dog Sadie, currently reside in Massillon. Over the summer, we bought a house and will be moving to Manchester in December! Ben is three and a half years old and is beginning preschool this year. He kept us very busy over the summer. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Akron University. I completed my Master’s Degree at Marygrove College. I am beginning my thirteenth year of teaching at Nolley. I was Nolley’s Permanent Substitute for three years and taught third grade for four years. This is my sixth year teaching first grade and I am thrilled! I have always wanted to teach first grade. I hope to make learning an enjoyable and valuable experience for your child. I’ve also learned that this process is best facilitated with involvement of family members.
If there are any questions which arise during the year, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please write a note to send in with your child or call Nolley School at 882-4133 to let me know a convenient time to call or meet with you. You can also e-mail me at Laura.Bowser@manchester-panthers.org I look forward to a productive year with you and your child.
