Mrs. Lara Hathaway

Welcome to 4th Grade!


      I am in my 12th year as a classroom teacher in Wake County after graduating from Appalachian State University with a BS degree in Elementary Education.  I’ve taught ten years in fifth grade, which gives me invaluable knowledge on where your child needs to be academically and behaviorally at the end of the year.  Having said that, I am thrilled to be working with the fourth grade team again this year at Oak Grove.  I have the privilege of teaching some amazingly fun concepts.  This school is close to my new home in Holly Springs and I am eager to become a part of the "Otter Community".  My husband and I have three young children (5, 4, and 2 years old), as well as a sweet dog who puts up with a lot of extra affection.  My southern drawl hides my Canadian upbringing, and I continue to love all winter activities such as snowboarding, skiing, hockey, and figure skating.  I also love reading and look forward to sharing some engaging new books with my students.  We are going to have a wonderful year together!
