Hello! I am Victoria Laureska and I am new to Traylor Academy this 2022-2023 school year. This is my fifth year teaching and my first year teaching Kindergarten at Traylor. I am excited to be here and to be joining this team of dedicated educators. I decided post-college that I wanted to make a difference through education and left my job in live music and event planning (and what I thought was my passion) to become a teacher and it has been the best decision of my life. I have found my true passion in the classroom and more specifically in teaching literacy and helping students to read, write, and love books. I believe in every child succeeding academically and learning to love themselves and school along the way. In my spare time I practice yoga, enjoy hiking, camping, and snowboarding with my husband, and most of all watching TV with my two cats and a bowl of ice cream. I am looking forward to getting to know the Traylor community and all the students, as well as the families and educators that are so passionate about ensuring their success.
