Mrs. Laurel Oliveira
I am a native Rhode Islander who grew up in Bristol. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Rhode Island College and I earned my Master's Degree in reading at Providence College in 2005. I have been teaching since 1996 and at Hathaway School since 2001. I have been in first grade since 2011. First grade is my “dream” job and I really have a passion for teaching!
I'm also a mom of two daughters, Mackenzie and Camille! We live in Tiverton with my husband, and we are a typical family balancing work, school and activities. I share this so that you know that I walk in your shoes as a parent. I certainly will be able to relate to and understand your concerns, anxieties, and hopes for your children. Rest assured that I will love your child like my own, and I will do my very best to help them grow socially, emotionally and educationally.
I hope to be able to provide your child with a memorable year in first grade!
