Meet Miss Genevish!

The newsletter where you learn all about your teacher

Who I Am

Hello! My name is Laura Kate Genevish, but you can call me Miss Genevish (or Miss G!). I am so excited to meet you! I recently graduated from Christopher Newport University right here in Newport News with my Master's degree in Elementary Education, and I spent lots of time studying reading and writing while I was in college.

I have a mom, dad, a younger sister named Bethany, and a pretty tortoiseshell-colored cat named Smudge. In my free time, I like to run, watch movies, read books, go to the pool and beach, and make guacamole! I love anything with flamingos on it (pink is one of my favorite colors), and I love the book The Rainbow Fish.

We have a great year ahead of us! Keep on reading to discover more!
