My name is Laura Wetmore. I am a third-grade teacher at YES. I received my teaching degree from Springfield College, MA, and upon finishing, decided to move west! I landed in Lake Tahoe, where I stayed for about 4 years. I was a long and short term sub, but mostly- I skied. :) My (now) husband and I, then moved a bit south to Berkeley. I began teaching a class for children with autism, while earning a Master's in English as a Second Language. I realized my heart was in the inclusive beauty of the regular education classroom, so I transferred into a first-grade teaching position.
While we enjoyed the west coast very much, settling down closer to family became a priority. We chose Maine for its' natural beauty, hometown feel, and relaxed attitude... we have loved it here ever since! We now have a beautiful 6-year-old boy named Drew, and a 2-year-old daughter, Talia. They amaze me every day! Working in Yarmouth is simply the best. This 2017-2018 school year begins my 13th year of teaching! I look forward to spending it with you and your family. Cheers!
