Mrs. Laura Lucas

Hi!  I am Miss Laura.  This is my 19th year in education.  Of my 19 year, 16 of those years have been here in Valley View School District.  During my teaching career, I have held a variety of positions, kindergarten teacher, reading specialist, interventionist, special education administrator and of course early childhood teacher.  I am married and am a mother of 2 girls - Ella who is 11 and Delilah who is 8. A fun fact is that Delilah actually attended school here are VVEC when she was in preschool, so I have been on the parent side of things as well.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child, to give them a positive, fun, and nurturing classroom in which to grow and learn! With that said, I very much value your input and insights - please feel free to contact me at any time via e-mail at, you can also call the school at (815)886-7827 and leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  In the coming weeks, I will be sending lots of information home on additional ways to contact me, what your child will be learning, and how you can be involved - so be on the lookout for “backpack mail”.  I am looking forward to a great partnership!
