Teacher Appreciation Week: Alumna Laura Gonzalez
May 9, 2024

This Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re highlighting Abbey alums making a difference in local schools!

Say hello to Laura Gonzalez, an alumna of Belmont Abbey, graduating in 2023! She’s currently a kindergarten teacher at St. Michael’s Catholic School in Gastonia, NC.

1. What do you love about teaching?

I love watching the students’ minds grow and fall in love with school! Getting to watch them grow into their personalities and faith is such an amazing experience.

2. How did the Education department at BAC help you develop as a teacher?

They helped me find what type of teacher I wanted to be and could become. Opened my eyes to the multiple opportunities in ways to help all types of students. 

We’re grateful for your commitment and effort, Laura! Being your alma mater is an honor we cherish.
