I am excited to welcome you to 5th grade!  My name is Laura Arahovas and I will be your child’s new teacher.  I would like to introduce myself.  I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and attended Brooklyn Technical High School.  I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Boston University and my Master’s Degree in Education at Temple University.  I currently reside in Harrisburg with my husband, our three boys and our dog. 

This is my second year teaching 5th Grade at Holtzman Elementary.  I began my career as a substitute teacher at Susquehanna Township School District and Central Dauphin School District.  I have worked as a Paraprofessional for the last three years at Thomas W. Holtzman, where I also had the pleasure of working in several special education classrooms, including Autism Support and Life Skills.  

Outside of school, I love to read, cook, travel and watch my children play sports.  I look forward to getting to know you and your children in the coming days.  Please feel free to contact me via phone, email or Dojo if you have any questions or concerns.  

Here’s to a great year!
