Laura Forde has been teaching Criminal Law for the last twelve years and loves every second of it. In addition, she is a licensed Social Studies teacher with a Bachelors of Science in Social Studies Education and a Master’s in Educational Leadership. For the last 14 years, Laura has taught in North Dakota, West Virginia and online. She believes that students need to be engaged and involved in their learning. In addition, she also feel it is important that what is learned is relevant to the students’ own lives today. Having student centered learning and a tie to their lives helps students retain what they have learned.
Ms. Forde loves the content she teaches so much that she travels during the summer to different institutes to learn more about what she teaches. These adventures have taken her across the United States, which she has an amazing post card collection that shows every place she has been. Laura Forde truly believes that hands-on learning works for teachers as well as students!
