Rebecca Laramy

I moved to Colorado from Florida in 2018. I began working at Friends shortly after arriving in Boulder and I found my home away from home. Friends School is a welcoming and enriching place to work where I can learn from my colleagues, students, and the community.
I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a B.S. in Psychology in 2014 and did continued education work in Psychology at the University of North Florida. I graduated with my M.A. in Early Childhood Education from the University of Denver in 2021. I am grateful for the opportunities that Friends school has afforded me and I am excited to continue my work with children co-teaching in preschool.
My passions outside of work include skiing, golfing, soccer, and cuddling with my sweet kitties, Tess and Sasha.
I love learning with children and enjoy how my job changes from moment to moment. I feel very connected to the staff, parents and children in this dynamic community. I feel empowered to create an environment where the concepts of head, hand and heart are equally represented. I am honored to teach at a school where children, families and teachers are respected and whose ideals are close to my heart.
Originally from Wisconsin (yes, I love cheese and the Packers), I spend my free time playing my violin and performing music with various bands, kicking a soccer ball around with friends, reading sci-fi novels, and enjoying quality time with my family.

Challenging minds. Nurturing spirits. Honoring individuality.
