Welcome to My Fourth Grade Classroom! 

My name is Mrs. Laney and this will be my 19th year teaching at Woodrow Wilson.  I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth! When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three children. We also have a dog and a cat in our house so it is very busy.  I love to read and go for walks/run with the kids.

Educational Philosophy/Vision: 
I have always wanted to be a teacher and have loved working at Woodrow Wilson my entire teaching career. I will be working with your child and motivating them to do their best while making sure they know they are loved and encouraged in our classroom.  I consider the success of children to be a joint effort which involves the school, the teacher, the student and the family. Through our partnership and with all of us working together, we are sure to have a wonderful and successful school year.
