My name is Laura Mandrell and I have been teaching for 29 years. I grew up in Rochester, NY and loved going to school and playing soccer. I went to Houghton College in Houghton, NY and then moved to Florida to start my teaching career. I am married with four daughters that graduated from Leesburg High School and are attending Lake Sumter State Colllege. I also have a grandson named Kaiden who will be one September 6th. My husband and I have a dog park on our ten acres at home in the Village area. We enjoy working with the dogs and meeting new people.
