laura senturia portraitCongratulations to Fourth Grade Teacher Laura Senturia on her recognition as the FCPS 2023 Outstanding Elementary School Teacher at this year's FCPS Honors event, held at George Mason University Center for the Arts on June 14th.

Laura brings positive energy, a caring nature, and a strong sense of compassion to school each day. She creates a safe space where students are encouraged to celebrate their strengths, embrace one another, learn from their mistakes, and reach their highest potential. Laura leads by example by empowering students to see themselves as global citizens, emphasizing respect, kindness, and hard work. This work goes beyond her classroom walls to the entire student body at Powell Elementary through her leadership of the Student Council Association (SCA). She builds and creates an uplifting community around her, making an intentional and ongoing effort to construct an environment where everyone – students, teachers, and staff – knows they are valued, cared for, and important.

Congratulations to the following Colin Powell Elementary School staff members who were also recognized at this year's FCPS Honors Ceremony!
