    Gentry Jaguars

               Me: My Name is Andy Laws, I am the 6th Grade Team M Social Studies  teacher here at Gentry Middle school.  This is my first year teaching in Columbia Public Schools, although I have been working for CPS since August of 2015.  I have worked as a paraprofessional, a substitute teacher, an instructional aide, and a long term substitute.  I graduated with honors with a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education from the University of Missouri in 2015.  I am also an assistant football coach at GMS.  Before pursuing education I was in the army.  I served in the 1st Battalion of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.  I have one overseas tour in the Western Anbar Province in Iraq - with most of our time spent between Ramadi and Al-Taqaddum.

             Outside of School: I love cheering for my alma mater, M-I-Z!  Supporting my Kansas City area teams, the Chiefs and Royals, and movies.  I also enjoy swimming and am sorry to see summer end so soon!  Please don't hesitate to contact me!  Go Jaguars!
