FOP’s Middle Department consists of our 2nd & 3rd Graders and they are divided between three homerooms. However, they rotate between all three teachers for various activities. Our Middle Department staff includes:
Laura McClenaghan, Teacher
Hi, I’m Laura, one of the three Primary teachers at Fremont Open Plan. This year is my ninth year in the Primary Department and my twenty-third year of teaching.
In my first two years of teaching, I taught math and music in a private high school in San Francisco. For twelve years after that, I taught fifth and sixth grade in Elk Grove, Clovis, and Dallas, Texas. I loved the big kids all those years. Along the way, I had kids of my own, became intrigued with early literacy and now delight in teaching the little ones!
I have a wonderful family of four. My husband is the rector at Wellspring Anglican Church in downtown Modesto. My oldest child, Kyna, is a tenth grader in the IB program at Modesto High. My son, Jimmy, is a sixth grader in the Upper Department who is obsessed with baseball. We also have a Brittany spaniel named Cavan.
In my leisure time, I like to play the piano, cook, exercise and stamp. I love to walk on the beach, and I enjoy entertaining guests in our home.
