Ms. Laura (Ms. Lala to the kids) is the Preschool and PDO music teacher and the chapel teacher. She has a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M (WHOOP!) and taught 6th grade social studies for 10 years. Laura is thrilled to now be a part of the Weekday family because regardless of how old they are, she loves teaching children about the world, music, and the God who made it all. She has been a member of UBC for over 20 years and has served in preschool and student ministries at various times. Music has always been one of her favorite things, and she is in choir, Chamber Singers and handbells. Laura has been married to Isaac for 9 years, and they have 2 little boys who are loving their time in Weekday. She and her family serve with a ministry in Zambia called Alliance for Children Everywhere. When not teaching or advocating for families in Zambia, Laura loves to scuba dive, be around animals, swim, travel, read, and hang out with her family. Her favorite verse is Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Ms. Maria is very excited to teach Spanish at UBC. While growing up in Mexico you learn a few things….1) the love of your culture and 2) the love of language!

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends; and when she has extra free time, she loves to read a good book.
