Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Laura Josey and I'm the Title I Reading Specialist at Black Mountain Elementary. This is my third year at BME and I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful school and community. I live in Black Mountain with my husband, my son, and our two adorable cats. I love to go for walks around town, bake yummy goodies, read all sorts of books, and work in our garden.

I also love helping kids find strategies that help them grow as readers and critical thinkers. I really enjoy helping students find their love of reading. Sometimes it just takes one book to set off that spark or more time to practice skills to make reading easier for students. I hope to help every student I work with to get to that place where they are reading proficiently, with confidence and an eagerness to read for enjoyment. 

Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the Title I program at Black Mountain Elementary.
