Mrs. Laura Toney
Hi, I am Laura Toney and I have been the art teacher at Malcom Bridge Elementary since 2011. I started teaching art in 1988 and taught at the elementary and middle school levels and earned a master's degree in Early Childhood Education in 1999 shortly before moving to Oconee County. The next nine years were spent teaching second and third grades at Statham Elementary and then Malcom Bridge Elementary. I jumped at the opportunity to move into the art room at MBES and have not looked back. I believe that my experience as a regular education teacher helps me to see ways to integrate the general curriculum into the art room, creating a web of knowledge and experiences for students. I am a ‘maker’ by nature and I love giving students at Malcom Bridge Elementary the experience of learning, wondering, creating and growing.
My husband Chuck and I have three sons; Isaac, Will and John, and are proud to call Oconee County home.
