Mrs. Laurel Baxter


My name is Laurel Baxter, and I am excited to be returning to the Shaw VPA staff this year! I have been teaching for ten years, eight of which have been in St. Louis Public Schools. I have taught a variety of elementary grades, from second to sixth grade, and I have been a Reading Intervention Specialist as well. I am happy to be returning to 3rd grade math this year. I love teaching math and believe all students can be successful mathematicians!
