Ms. Laura Transue

Hello! My name is Laura Transue and I am the K-4 Special Education teacher here at McAuliffe STEM Academy. This will be my second year teaching at McAuliffe and I am SO proud to be a part of the Silver Falcon family!
I am a mom to three kids who currently all attend McAuliffe. My family lives in Timnath and we LOVE spending our free time exploring Colorado and enjoying everything this state has to offer. We love to hike, camp, paddleboard and kayak, ride bikes, and play in our garden. I enjoy cooking and baking and love trying new recipes. I also love to run and lift weights! I am currently working on my Master’s in Special Education at UNC which keeps me busy when I’m not at work. I’m enjoying learning new ways to empower, encourage, and teach my students!

As a special education teacher, I believe that every child can learn.  Every child has the ability inside them to grow in knowledge and as a person. The difference comes in the way that students learn. Our students learn at different paces. Some learn better with different methodologies. Some may grasp certain concepts better than others. I love that my job allows me to be creative in the way I teach. I love getting to work with small groups or one-on-one and really developing relationships with my students. I call all of my students “my kids” and I feel so privileged to work with them every day!
