Mrs. Laura Riner

I have been teaching in the Alabama First Class Pre-K Program for a very long time and absolutely love it.  I graduated from Athens State University with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2008 and am finished earning my Masters Degree from the University of West Alabama in August 2020.  I love working at Athens Elementary School and look forward to learning more with them this year!

I have been happily married to my wonderful husband, Junior Riner, for over 25 years and have two beautiful children (well, young adults).  My son, T.J. lives in Tuscumbia, AL.  My daughter, Tori, and her husband, Caunr, live in Trinidad, Colorado.  I have greatly enjoyed being a mother and look forward to the next phase of my life!

Teaching is my passion.  I love teaching!  I love seeing those "ah-ha" moments light up in the eyes of the children I am privileged to help.  If I am blessed to have your child in my classroom, I look forward to getting to know your family and partnering with you to help your child dream big and grow strong.
