Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Laura Josey and I'm the Title I Reading Specialist at Black Mountain Elementary. This is my second year at BME and I previously taught at Koontz Intermediate in South Asheville. This is my 17th year teaching in North Carolina and my 9th 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, my 7 month old son, and our two adorable kittens.  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. 

My Virtual Office Hours are Monday-Friday, 1:30-3:30
