Welcome! My name is Laura Beth Hieser. I teach Kindergarten at Benjamin Elementary. This will be my fifteenth year of teaching kindergarten. I also taught first grade for one year. I am proud to work at Benjamin Elementary. I have taught kindergarten at Benjamin since it opened in 2010. I absolutely LOVE teaching kindergarten!
    I graduated from Eastern Illinois University, and I also have a master's degree in reading from Illinois State University. 
    I am married to my wonderful husband Casey. We live in Bloomington with our two boys. Cameron is 7 and Levi is 3. They both bring so much happiness and joy to our lives. 
    In my free time I enjoy baking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. 
      I look forward to working with you and your child. It is going to be a rewarding year filled with learning and fun!
