Mrs. Laura Maricle, M.Ed, STM

Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Laura Maricle and I am excited to be back in the classroom and your Science teacher this year. This will be my 18th year as an educator at Bens Branch Elementary. This past school year I was supporting the Curriculum Department by writing online lessons for fifth grade science and social studies.  As a true believer in life long learning I found this to be an exciting opportunity and I look forward to sharing the things I have learned and my love of science with you.

This will be my 20th year as a part of NCISD.  My expectations are high for all students so they will be successful both in school and life.  Learning is an adventure and your education is the most powerful gift you will receive.

My husband, Will and I have 3 adult children and 2 mini schnauzers.  We enjoy traveling and cooking.
