Hello My Name Is...

Laura Pirkey

Mrs. Laura Pirkey

 

I look forward to a productive and fun semester of Social Studies! I love social studies and I am excited to share my passion with your student.  I have been an educator in Beaufort County Schools for twelve years.  I am the Z Club and Teens for Health Youth Advisor. Currently, I teach psychology and world history.  I have a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology and I am a National Board Certified Teacher.  It has been my pleasure and joy to work with young adults since 2005!  

My philosophy of education is simple.  I believe education is invaluable to all members of our society.  I believe all students can learn through a variety of instructional strategies.  I rely on real world applications and technology to make psychology class engaging, relevant, and enjoyable! It is my goal for each student to find psychology useful in their personal life and future career.
