Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Laura Josey and I'm the Title I Reading Specialist at Black Mountain Elementary. This is my first year at BME and I previously taught at Koontz Intermediate in South Asheville. This is my 16th year teaching in North Carolina and my 8th year as a reading specialist. I love helping kids find strategies that help them as readers and I hope to encourage them to find their love of reading. I live in Black Mountain with my husband and two adorable kittens. My husband and I are also expecting a baby boy in January 2020. I'm so thankful to be a part of this school and this community. Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the Title I program at BME.
