Mrs. Laura Starnes
I grew up in the Hiddenite Community and attended Hiddenite Elementary, East Jr. High, and ACHS. I attended CVCC and graduated from UNC Charlottle. I worked in the banking industry for several years before going back to school. I attended the NC Teach program at Lenoir-Rhyne and began my teaching career with Alexander County Schools, first at East and now here at West. I have taught 6th and 7th grade Math for 15 years. This is my first year in the CTE field where I will be teaching Business, Finance and Information Technology classes. I now live in the Bethlehem community and I am married and have 2 children. My oldest child, Mattie, is a senior at ACHS. My youngest child, Karlee, is in the 7th grade here at West.
