Hello! My name is Laura Buddemeyer and this is my 11th year teaching (wow does time fly!). I taught fifth grade at Russell Boulevard my first year, taught fourth grade at Derby for six years, and then came to Shepard in 2018, teaching both fourth and fifth grades.
I was born and raised right here in Columbia, Missouri. In other words, I was born a Tiger! I attended Benton Elementary, Gentry Middle School, Jeff Junior & Rock Bridge High School.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri. I pursued a Master’s degree in Learning, Teaching & Curriculum and graduated from the University of Missouri! I am a forever learner just as much as your child is and look forward to growing as a teacher this coming year.
