About Mrs. Wilkerson

Hi! I am Laura Wilkerson. I grew up in Montgomery, AL where I graduated from Robert E. Lee high school. Throughout my years as a student in Montgomery, I was influenced by two amazing art teachers. While I was pursuing my undergraduate degree, I decided to focus my portfolio on graphic design and photography. I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelors degree in Art Studio. Before coming to the realization that art education was the career for me, I worked as a graphic designer for an insurance company. I also became a professional photographer in the process. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Education at the University of Alabama. I am the art teacher for Margaret Elementary and Springville Elementary. 

I am married to my wonderful husband, Cody. He is also a teacher! He teaches at Springville Middle School. We have two dogs, a dachshund and a lab. When I am not in the classroom, I am usually behind my camera, travelling, or reading a good book on my porch. 

I am thrilled to meet your student this year and hope to inspire them to create art work inspired by the world around them.
