all about me

Hello! My name is Laura Malsam. I am so excited to be your child's teacher. I have been teaching in OPS for 24 years. This is my third year at Standing Bear. I was born and raised in Omaha.  I have two grown children, Taylor and Trey.  Trey is in college and lives here in Omaha.  Taylor is a pediatric nurse at a hospital here in town.  Her amazing husband, Jordan, is in the Air Force.  Taylor and Jordan have a beautiful daughter, Carlin.  She will be turning 2 in October. We are best best buddies and spend a ton of time together playing, cuddling, and reading books.

I am honored to be your child's teacher. Communication between home and school is very important. Never hesitate to reach out to me.  Feel free to jot a note, email me at laura.malsam@ops.org, or call the office and ask to speak with me.  That number is (531)299-2140.  

Thank you for sharing your child with me. We are going to have a fantastic year!
 

academics

The jump from third grade to fourth grade is a big one, but it is also full of fun and exciting opportunities. I am ready to learn and grow with you!
