Welcome to Laura Rod's page! This is my third year teaching Community Skills here at Gentry Middle School and my ninth year with Columbia Public Schools. I have teaching experience at all grade levels in special education and in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th grade in general education. At last count I have lived in 9 states and 1 territory of the United States. I have one daughter that attends MACC, a daughter completing a online high school program and a son attending Rock Bridge High School. I am very excited about this new school year.
