I am Ms. McLaughlin and I can't wait to meet you! I graduated from Creighton University with a degree in Psychology and Business. After working in the business world, and then staying home with my children when they were small ,I went back to school and got my Masters Degree in Education from Creighton. I found teaching to be my passion and I love working with my students! I have been teaching at Belle Ryan for 5 years and prior to that I taught 6th grade for 5 years at another school. I have three children of my own - 2 boys who are in their 20s and living on their own, and 1 girl who will be a senior at Central High School this year. I love music, dance, basketball (as a spectator of course!), reading and traveling!
