My name is Laura Kiley. I am a graduate of Holy Trinity (now Corpus Christi) Catholic School and Central Catholic High School. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Eastern Illinois University. This is my first year as a first grade teacher, but my 16th year of teaching at Corpus Christi. I started with 2 years in Kindergarten and then taught 13 years in preschool. My husband and I have 4 children who also attend Corpus Christi. Jameson is in 7th grade, Campbell is in 5th, Adeline is in 3rd, and Dax is in Kindergarten. I look forward to having a great year with the first graders!
