Presenting Rembrandt, “Remmy” the Barred Owl at Wildlands
Hello! My name is Laura Bauer and I am an art teacher at Orefield Middle School. This will be my eigth year teaching art in the district. I have had the opportunity to teach in many of Parkland’s Elementary Schools including Parkway Manor, Schnecksville, Fogelsville and Jaindl Elementary. I am excited to be starting my fifth year at Orefield and look forward to meeting new students!
I graduated from Moravian College in 2008 and was fortunate to be hired as a part time art teacher by Parkland the same year. I just recently earned my Master’s Degree in Art Education from Kutztown University, and will continue to take courses to improve myself as an educator. In addition to teaching, I enjoy volunteering at Wildlands Conservancy in Emmaus. I began volunteering here when I was 10 and working when I was 14 years old. It was there, at Wildlands’ summer camps, that I discovered my passion for working with children through my experiences as a staff naturalist.
In my spare time, I enjoy caring for and working with the many on site animals at Wildlands, spending time with my family and friends, reading, cooking, baking, hiking, taking photographs and of course finding time to make art!
