Mrs. Laresa Campbell

My name is Laresa Campbell, and I am ecstatic about being your child's fifth-grade teacher.  Some might say that I did it backward because I had my children first and then went to college to earn my teaching degree. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix in May 2017.  I have been incredibly blessed to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full-time teacher.  Before I went to college, I worked for five years at Bethesda Christian School as a preschool teacher.  I have been involved at Wateree since 2003 as a parent, volunteer, and substitute teacher.  

We have lived in Utah, California, Texas, and South Carolina as a family.  I have six wonderful boys, and five of them have graduated from Lugoff-Elgin High School. The youngest is a rising Junior.  I am also a proud grandma to five grandchildren, three boys and two girls.  I love to read, particularly children's books.  My hobbies include theatre, photography, sewing, and I love to watch musicals. But, of course, my favorite activity is hanging out with my husband and boys.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine!  I welcome your calls and messages. If you would like to discuss anything with me, please call the school office at 438-8018 (my extension is 8237). E-mail is an excellent way to keep in touch with and Class Dojo.
