Laura Richardson

Second Grade Teacher

I am excited to return to Ascent Academy in West Jordan this year as a 2nd grade teacher!

This will be my 6th year teaching. Previously I have taught both 1st and 3rd grades.

I strive to create a collaborative classroom where students can ask questions, share their accomplishments, and feel that they are learning and growing each day.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Brigham Young University rather a long time ago. After several years working in the private sector and raising a family, I returned to Western Governors University where I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching.

I was born and raised in Taylorsville, Utah. I now live in West Jordan with my husband, Steve, and my three children (Andrew, Sarah, and Daniel). We also have a border collie named Max. As a family we love to watch movies, play board games, go camping, and take walks. I enjoy reading, audiobooks, Marvel movies, puzzles, and chocolate. I also enjoy being a teacher.

Each year is a new, exciting journey, and I am looking forward to great adventures with your students this year!
