Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Yolanda Laws

I have my Bachelors of Arts from East Carolina University in Psychology with a minor in Child Development and Family Relations. I Bleed Purple & Gold!!!!!!! I am born and raised right here in Raleigh. I graduated in 2007 from Southeast Raleigh High School. Go Bulldogs!! I have two children, Jayden is 8 and a Taylor is 3. They are everything to me. I love sports. I used to run track back in school, and now my son runs as well!! 6th in the region in the 100m! I enjoy movies and food. I love Hibachi and Pizza. I wanted to teach, because I love kids. I've always wanted to be that teacher that kids remember even as adults. I want to make impact on their future lives, and guide them in a way to make them more productive people in society. Reaching kids outside of the classroom is my goal. Teaching math or english is important, but being able to see the impact I will make as not only a teacher but a mentor in life is my goal. I am excited to join the MECME family, and I hope that if your child enters my classroom that they will leave with more than just an education.


What I want parents, students and the community to know about me and my classroom...

I want my kids to love to come to school. I want my kids to feel comfortable coming to me with issues, and not being afraid to speak up. I want it to be an open, but controlled environment. I want to make learning fun, and for the kids to want to do it and enjoy it.
