Welcome to Kindergarten!

    My name is Laura Lopez and I am so happy to be teaching here at Hancock Elementary! I have been teaching for over 15 years, but I joined the Hancock Kinder Team in 2007.  I have taught Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade.     

    I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas.  I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies , a minor in Elementary Education and a specialization in Bilingual Education.  I also obtained my endorsements in both ESL and Early Childhood Education here in Arizona.  I did my field study with students in grades  K-6th, but the "little" ones definitely won my heart!   

    I moved to Arizona in 2000 and have called it home ever since!  I have been happily married to my husband, Salvador, for 21 years.  My family also includes my two wonderful children, Christian and Alyssa, and our adorable miniature pinscher “Kobie”. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, shopping, spending time with family and friends and cheering for our favorite sport teams.

    My goal as your child’s teacher is to foster a love for learning and to provide them with an amazing and memorable Kindergarten experience!
