Degrees and Certifications:
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!
