Ms. Catherine Laxton

I am so excited to be part of the Vandora Springs Elementary Eagles!

I am a transplant from the border of Pennsylvania where I studied Early Childhood Education and Special Education at Lock Haven University. I moved to North Carolina, where I began my teaching career in first grade in 2015. Since then, I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third grades. I went back to school at Duke in 2019 for additional schooling and licensure in Academically and Intellectually Gifted Children.

I have studied a wide spectrum of education and it has led me to a deeper understanding that ALL children learn differently and have different needs. I am committed to helping students learn the best way that they can by providing different approaches to learning! 

When it comes to my family, it gets a little hairy! I may be biased, but I have the most adorable fur babies on the planet. One cat - Sophia, and one dog - Gunner.
