Mrs. Laura Vijil
Hi my name is Laura Vijil. I am a third grade teacher at Wilshire Elementary School. I am married and have one son who also attends an NEISD high school. I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and extended family. We enjoy the outdoors and visiting new places.
During my teaching career I have taught all grades first through fifth at two different elementary schools in NEISD. I have been teaching for over 20 years. Each year is a new experience. I truly enjoy working with children of all ages.
Although our class sizes vary each year, I differentiate the learning and experiences to help each child reach their full potential. My classroom is a safe, fun environment in which they all can grow and learn at their own rate. Working hand in hand with families is the best way to accomplish the optimum success for each child. Reading is such a critical skill that needs to be reinforced in all areas of children's lives. Readers truly do become leaders.
I look forward to working closely with you to help your child to become a succesful reader and leader.
The best way to contact me is by email.
