Miss Laura Oyler

My name is Laura Oyler and I teach kindergarten at Langston Hughes. The 2024-2025 school year will be my 8th year teaching kindergarten at Langston.  I was born and raised in Lawrence and have absolutely loved being a part of the Bobcat family! I received my bachelor's degree from KU and was named a Kansas Teacher of Promise. I graduated with a master's degree from the reading specialist program at KU and am a licensed reading specialist. I completed the two-year LETRs (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) program in spring 2024. I have also completed the first two levels of training in Orton-Gillingham. Reading is my favorite subject to teach and I always enjoy watching my Kinder Stars grow as readers throughout the year. One of my favorite things about kindergarten is getting to be a part of many families' first experience at Langston Hughes. It is the best place to be! I hope that your child's experience in kindergarten is full of fun, learning, and grace as we grow together throughout the year. I am so excited for another wonderful year with my Kinder Stars and their amazing families!
