She is the 2002 Washington State Migrant Education Program Administrator of the Year.  Over the last 14 years Laura has presented workshops on
TPR and related language teaching strategies, integrating technology into language instruction, and Total Quality Education. She is a founder of CBTT, and as such organized and coordinated internationally attended conferences for FL and ESL teachers throughout the l990s.

She is the author of a number of books for language teachers, including The Talking T-Shirt and Other Writing Projects for FL and ESL Students and What Can I Leave for My Sub? Quick and Easy Activities for your Substitute Teacher.


Today Laura, as founder and president of Prolinguistica Corporation, is dedicated to bringing the best instructional methods to all teachers, whether their focus is on foreign language, ESL, or teaching grade level content to English language learners.
