Laurie Elwick
Laurie ElwickTeacher Trainer and Support Specialist
I have been in the educational field for over 35 years. It has been a pleasure to teach in a variety of schools that include private, public, charter and homeschool. I believe each of these situations have their unique challenges for educators. I have served as a para professional in special education and a teacher in the general education classroom in both elementary, and middle school. I found my passion several years ago teaching middle school science. One of my missions is to not just teach students science, but rather to teach them to “think”. As a science teacher, I understand firsthand how teachers are pulled in so many directions and often don’t have the support they need to prepare engaging and meaningful lessons or labs.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Colorado Christian University with a BA in Education and my undergraduate was from Pikes Peak Community College. I hold a professional teaching credential in elementary education and secondary license in science.

I have had many leadership roles over the years that I have been in education, but my favorite has been supporting other teachers and creating a collaborative environment where we can all learn from one another.

My philosophy of learning:
Being a teacher has been a lifelong passion. I began tutoring younger students when I was in sixth grade and have continued in various coaching, mentoring, and teaching responsibilities my entire life. I love the challenge of figuring out how each child learns differently. I am energized by the “light bulb” moments students have when they understand a concept for the first time. I also love the educational process. Whether I am teaching or taking a class myself, I love learning new things and passing them on to others. I believe to teach is more than standing up in front of a classroom lecturing students; I see teaching as a daily interaction of people, ideas, facts and beliefs all formed into the curricula, played out in my classroom. Teaching is more than a job, it is a daily adventure with no two days the same.

I am excited to help “See the Change” reach its fullest potential.
