Biography

Hi there! My name is Laura Stamper and I am the Head Start Associate in your child's classroom! This is my first year with the Des Moines Public School district and I couldn't be more excited to be working with your children. I graduated from Des Moines Area Community College with an Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children for 10 years in different centers around the Des Moines area ages birth to five. Some fun facts about me are I enjoy spending time with friends and family, my two nieces Evey and Lily, and my dog Eve. I love playing softball whenever I can or just being outside. I am so looking forward to working with you all!
