Upland Heights Elementary School

Laura Carter

Hello! I am part of the 5th grade team at Upland Heights. I have been teaching 5th grade math since 2009 and love sharing my passion for math with my students! I also have a love of technology and am always on the lookout for cool new ways to use it in my classroom. Teaching at UH is special to me because I've been teaching here since its opening; there is no place I'd rather be!
Here is a little about me: I have two miniature dachshunds, Lilly and Chip, as well as a Goldendoodle, Charlie. I also keep quite busy serving as chapter advisor for the Alpha Chi Omega sorority at Tech. I do some private math tutoring throughout the year as well. If I do ever have spare time, you can find me reading, crafting, antiquing or spending time with my family or my pups. I'm a native Texan and Techsan and proud to say that the tradition continued with my own children. My son is a 2018 Texas Tech graduate with a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering/Master's in Business. In November 2019 he got married, and he and my sweet daughter-in-law live in the Dallas area with their two dachshunds, Duke and Sadie. In December 2019, my daughter graduated with her bachelor's and is a 2nd year Physical Therapy student at TTUHSC. She recently joined the dachshund club and welcomed Rosie this summer! My mom, Carol Moody, has five dachshunds herself and is the math tutor at UH, as well as a Frenship substitute teacher.
