Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Ms. Laginess and I am excited to be starting my first year here at MMS! Prior to Milan Middle School, I was working at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) but had been teaching for ten years before that. My degree in education has allowed me to travel the world, meet new people, and gain invaluable life experiences. I have taught everywhere from Las Vegas, Nevada to Papa, Hungary, and even taught at Eastern Michigan University while working on my Master's. I have traveled to 30 of the 50 states, and hope to visit all of them one day. I'm not sure which one I will visit next, but Louisiana is high up on my list! While living in Hungary I had the chance to visit Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Vatican City, France, Germany, Austria, and Bosnia. While traveling with students I also had the chance to visit to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Canada. As a Downriver Detroit native who had never left her home before college graduation, I can honestly say that teaching has changed my life for the better and opened up more doors than I had ever thought possible.
I look forward to getting to know you all and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
