Hello! My name is Laura Yockey and I am so excited to teach your child this year! I have been teaching since 2004 and I love being a Carlson Champion! I grew up in Arizona and now reside in the East Valley with my husband Nelson, my sons Holden and Griffin, and our dog Hannah. My hobbies include running, traveling, and spending time with my family. I look forward to spending the next year nurturing your child to their fullest potential!
