Laura Donegan
Teacher, RI
I am a Biology and AP Biology teacher at Barrington High School in RI. I hold a B.S. in Ecology and an M. Ed. in Literacy. In addition to an interest in science, I have a passion for using literacy practices in my classroom with my students. ExcEL has been a program I have enjoyed thoroughly because it has allowed me to learn and utilize best practices for MLL students with an improvement in my science and literacy lessons. I feel as though I have been able to not only become an effective educator to my MLL students but for all of my students. The structure and flexibility of the program have allowed me to take the content and cater it to my teaching style and classroom needs. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time outside with my husband and dog and reading novels.
