Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Laura Adkins
I am the physical education teacher at Northside Elementary School of the Arts. The 2016-17 school year will be my 23rd year of teaching. All of those years except for one, I have had the great privilege of teaching here at Northside! As a native of Rock Hill, I attended Ebenezer Avenue Elementary, Sullivan Middle and Rock Hill High School. Following high school, I went to Gardner Webb University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Physical Education. I also hold a Master's degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College. When I am not teaching, I like to spend time cheering on my favorite sports teams which include the North Carolina Tarheels, the Carolina Panthers and the Charlotte Hornets. I also enjoy cooking, shopping, going on long walks and spending time with my family.
