Hi my name is Dana Laurent and this is my first year at North Star Elementary! I am originally from Wisconsin and received my degree in Early Childhood Education and English as a Second Language from the Univeristy of Wisconsin - Madison. I feel that my degree greatly prepared me to foster high academic achievement in all students by adapting practices that serve my students needs. I am passionate about building relationships with students and providing them with the information, sources, tools and strategies young students must orchestrate to reach their full potential. I am excited to be apart of the North Star community!
