Welcome to Andrew Laws's page!
Me: My Name is Andy Laws, I teach 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies here at Gentry Middle school. This is my third 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 the head football coach, assistant 7th grade boys basketball coach, and coach the throwers in track 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 2020 Super Bowl Champion Chiefs and the 2015 World Series Champion Royals, and I also love going to movies. I enjoy running and swimming outside so I am sorry to see summer end! Please don't hesitate to contact me! Go Jaguars!
