About Ms. Laurie

I am originally from West Fargo, ND.  I attended college at NDSU & MSU-Moorhead.  I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Special Education.  My husband & I moved to Center in 1992.  In 2010, we moved north of Mandan, but continue to enroll our children in the Center-Stanton School district.  I have one daughter in college at BSC.

I have been with the Center School since 1992 , working in different roles.  I also worked in Hazen & Beulah during the summer months with the Oliver Mercer Special Education Unit’s Extended Summer School Program.  In 2003, I helped get the Small Hands Preschool & Child Care Center started.  A few years after that, the school (Royal Lyson, Superintendent) took over the preschool portion of it, which has been a plus for the program.

Our school gives kids a high quality education, and I believe it begins at the preschool level!  I feel early education is crucial to later academic success!  Call the elementary office at 701-794-8731, to register to child or to just ask questions!
