Mrs. Ricards

My name is Laura Ricards.  I have been working at Muhlenberg Elementary Center for a little over 14 years now.  I first spent some time in the district substituting before becoming a long-term substitute for 4th grade.  I was then hired to be  a 1st grade teacher and spent one year in 1st grade.  I then moved up to 2nd grade and have spent the last 13 years in second grade.
I graduated from Bloomsburg University with a degree in Elementary Education in 2007.  I then began my graduate work at Kutztown university shortly after.  I graduated from Kutztown with a Masters Degree in Reading with a Reading Specialist Certificate in December 2012.  It was a lot of work, but well worth it for the knowledge in reading I gained.  I'm very excited to put to use some of the methods and strategies I learned during reading and working with guided small groups!!
I married my husband, Justin, in June 2014 and added to our family in 2017 with the birth of our daughter Ellie!
