Phillips Exeter Academy
Laura is entering her 24th year teaching mathematics and statistics. Her interest in the field of statistics began in college as she sought a way to relate her double major in mathematics and geography. She pursued this interest by earning an M.S. in statistics from UMass, Amherst. After teaching AP Calculus and AP Statistics for ten years at The Hotchkiss School, she and her family moved to Exeter, NH where she continues to teach both AP courses at Phillips Exeter Academy. At Exeter, Laura was awarded the Harlan M. Ellis Instructorship Award and the Rupert Radford ’56 Faculty Fellowship. Laura has been actively involved in AP Statistics since 1998 when she began as a reader. She has served as a Reader, Table Leader and Question Leader. She just completed her 6th year on the Test Development Committee for the AP Statistics exam. In addition to AP Consulting, Laura works in the summer Exeter Math Institute, an intensive, hands-on professional development program for public middle and secondary school mathematics teachers. Aside from working with educators and students, Laura’s passions include world travel, camping, hiking, skiing, geocaching and spending time with family.
