Mrs. Laird has been a teacher for 20 years. She began her teaching career in Colton Joint Unified School District where she taught second and third grade, and fourth and fifth grade. In 1997, she came to the Fountain Valley School District, the same school district she attended as a child, as a fourth grade teacher at Gisler Elementary School. Today she teaches third grade and truly enjoys her time interacting with the students. Mrs. Laird works in tandem with her fellow third grade teacher and lifelong friend, Mrs. Rogers, sharing curriculum and students. The two teachers met in kindergarten at Harper Elementary School and are thrilled to share their teaching careers, ideas, and aspirations.
