Mrs. Laura Wilson

5th Grade Teacher


Mrs. Wilson holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. She taught various grades, including preschool, kindergarten, and 5th grade, over eight years before coming to Legacy in 2021.

If you took all the ideals and best practices I learned in college and created a school, you would have Legacy School. I was drawn to the large outdoor learning space, the opportunities for individualized instruction, and the creative and fun atmosphere. I’m excited about connecting with my students and offering them instruction tailored to their interests and goals.
