Mrs. Laura Shea
WELCOME to 6th Grade at Moore Middle School and the Cobra Team! My name is Laura Shea. I have been in various teaching capacities since earning my CA Teaching Credential in 1995. This is my 4th year teaching Math, Science, and Exploratory at Moore MS. My teaching partner is Mrs. Martin. You will most likely have her for your English and Social Studies classes.
Not only do you have a lot of curriculum to learn this year, but the way you have been "doing school" will dramatically change in August. You will have a minimum of 3 teachers that you rotate between for your 6 classes (also called periods). If at the beginning of the year you feel a bit "lost" or "overwhelmed", be reassured that you are NORMAL :) Come and talk to me if you need some help adjusting! I have an incoming 6th grader myself and will be traveling this journey with him as both teacher and mother.
My #1 advice for you this summer is ...... GET ORGANIZED and STAY ORGANIZED.
Parents: a supply list will come home during the first couple days of school. Please wait for it before buying too many school supplies.
My goal for each of my students is that they feel comfortable, feel confident, and have fun while they explore the many things that they need to learn by June 2018! Again.... Welcome!
