My name is Laura Alger and I have taught for 16 years at OES. I am a graduate of Indiana University with a Bachelors degree in Education. I have experience teaching 5th grade, 2nd grade and 15 years in 1st grade. I will be moving out of the classroom this next school year. I'm excited to challenge myself in a new area. I will be teaching Science to Kindergarten as well as math intervention to 4th and 2nd grade children. I have lived in Oxford Alabama for 21 years with my husband Doug. We have been married for 37 years. We have two children Patrick who is 31 years old and our daughter Abby who is 27 years old. Of course I can't forget my sweet puppy named Murphy. I have enjoyed many years of teaching and looking forward to this next school year.
