Please join us in congratulating Laredo Middle School’s 2021-2022 Educator of the Year – Ms. Kaylee Oberlies!

Ms. Oberlies is a 7th Grade Science Teacher at Laredo.

You can tell just by entering her classroom that it is a fun and engaging place to be! Lots of color and interesting displays all over the walls.

Students will agree that science is not boring the way Ms. Oberlies teaches it! Instead, the students are engaged in many hands-on activities that reinforce concepts in new ways. (Such as adaptation – figuring out how to unlock a door without the use of a thumb to help hold a key!)

Ms. Oberlies has dressed in various costumes to both entertain and engage her students, bringing smiles and laughs to everyone in the room.

Laredo students are not the only ones who benefit from Ms. Oberlies’ energy – Staff members are also on the receiving end of her kind and engaging personality. She is always willing to lend a hand or a listening ear.

On top of her teaching responsibilities, Ms. Oberlies is one of our WEB Sponsors – working with our 8th Grade Student leaders on various projects.

In addition, Ms. Oberlies got to know some of our new 6th Graders through organizing and being one of the Camp Leaders during Launch Camp that preceded this school year.
