My name is Laura Mize and this is my second year at Oakcrest. I previously taught 3rd and 5th grade in Sugarland, Texas. I am teaching 5th grade Social Studies and 6th grade Art at Oakcrest this year. I love history and I have a passion for Art! I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to teach both subjects. I received my degree in education from Texas Tech University. I have been married for 24 years and I have 3 totally awesome children. My oldest son is a senior at Texas Tech (Wreck 'Em Tech!), My younger son is a sophomore at OU (Boomer Sooner!) and my daughter is a junior at Klein High. I am an avid tennis player and I love to travel to warm climates and beautiful beaches! Reading on the beach is my favorite thing in the world! I enjoy watching my daughter cheer and I loved watching my sons play football when they were in high school. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to teach your kiddos!! Let's make it a great year!
