Ms. McCutcheon


Hello.  My name is Laura Nancy McCutcheon.  My father's military career took my family around the U.S.A. and overseas  to build a  love of travel, one of my favorite past times.  I visited most of the continental U.S.A. and lived in Texas, Illinois, Washington, Montana, Alaska, and England.   I feel like Hawaii is my second home, as visiting a month or more each year since 2004.  Outside of the U.S.A., I mostly visited Latin America, including El Caribe, followed by Europe, Asia, Canada, and French Polynesia.  I even visited Africa one day of a Mediterranean cruise!


In additional to my bilingual, Spanish, multicultural Pre-K through 6th Grade state teaching credential, I am a National Board Certified Educator for Early Childhood since 2001.  I became a teacher because I always loved school and my teachers!  Still, it  required lots of college and university work!  So, I earned  a General Education A.A. with a concentration of technology  courses, a  B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Latino Studies minor, and a Masters in Conflict Management.  I have taught in L.A.U.S.D. since 1995, both inside and outside of the classroom, for example, as an Instructional Coach, since I love working with enthusiastic, young scholars.  This is because I share my love of travel in learning  trips to make science and social studies come alive in their wonderful community!  I also feel so very proud of our young scholars whom work so hard to improve their academics each year!
