My name is Laura Baum and this is my first year at FCCNS. I work as a floater on Tuesdays but I love being called in on other days to help cover when people are out. I have loved working as a support teacher and getting to know many of the different students and teachers. Prior to FCCNS, I worked as a Pre-K teacher at another pre-school in town, and I was a first-grade teacher in Manhattan many moons ago before I had kids. I received my B.A. from the University of Vermont and my master's in Elementary Education from Hunter College in Manhattan. My husband and I have lived in Darien for 12 years. We have three kids, Molly is a freshman at the HS, Jane is in 7th grade and Teddy is in 6th grade at MMS. In my free time, I love to play tennis, go to the beach, and spend time with my family and friends.
