Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Laura Proffitt

Hello everyone! My name is Laura Proffitt.  I am so excited to be teaching at Purple Sage Elementary as part of the first grade team.  I have been teaching since 2003 and since then have taught every grade level between kindergarten and 5th grade.  I spent two years as a Math Intervention Coordinator/Teacher as well.  I love teaching, seeing little faces light up when they have that "ah-ha!" moment and instilling a love for learning in ALL students.  

I am honored to have been Nationally Board Certified for the past eleven years. I earned my B.A. in Communication from the University of California, Santa Barbara and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, Dominguez Hills.  

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends participating in a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, hiking, camping, and paddleboarding.  I am an avid sports fan and especially enjoy watching my two children play the sports they love.
