Something About Me:

Laura Singletary

After graduating with a B.S. in Mathematics from Lee University in 2004, I began teaching students mathematics at Walker Valley High School. While I was teaching at Walker Valley, I completed my Masters in Education at Lee University, taught the most amazing students, and taught a mathematics course at Lee University.

I married my sweetheart on December 2006 in Sedona, Arizona. He teaches math at WBHS and he is recently completed his Ed.S. degree.

In 2008, we moved to Athens, Georgia so I could attend the University of Georgia. I am second year Mathematics Education doctoral student, and I am loving every moment of my experience! Being a student at the University of Georgia, I have had the opportunity to study with outstanding professors, work on research through the Center for Proficiency in Teaching Mathematics, and review and edit for The Mathematics Educator.
