My Education and Professional Background
Hello! I'm Laura Brudvik from the frozen North! I grew up and was educated in a tiny town in Northeastern North Dakota, practically Canada. ;-) My high school graduating class had thirteen students! I got my BA in English with certification in Secondary Education from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND. I taught Secondary English for six years, four at Red River High School in Grand Forks, ND and two years at Fargo South High School in Fargo, ND.
My Educational Philosophy
I completed a Master's Degree in Education with a specialization in Teaching and Technology at Valley City State University in ND, and from there went on to be an Assistant Professor of English at Mayville State University in Mayville, ND for seven years. I graduated with a PhD in Teacher Education from the University of North Dakota and was an Assistant Professor of Education at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN for one year. Then...my husband, kiddos and I moved to sunny Arizona. :-) I believe everyone is a writer because everyone has an important story to tell. Respect is the paramount rule in my classroom. Respect others. Respect yourself. Respect the creative classroom space and time we've been given. I believe in helping students to discover their true potential. It's such a joy!
