My name is Laurel Carter and I am excited to begin my second year of teaching in the Healthcare Sciences division of the Polk County College and Career Academy. I graduated from Georgia Highlands College with an Associates of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and I have worked for the past 8 years in general dentistry. Throughout my career in the dental field, I have gained immeasurable skills that are best taught by real-world experience. I believe that it is important to incorporate traditional styles of learning with hands-on experiences to reinforce what is being taught. I understand that each student presents with a unique set of goals and learning styles and I strive to try to meet their needs by using a variety of teaching methods in my classroom.
If you have any questions, the best way to reach me is by email. I check it several times throughout the day and evening and will respond as soon as I can!
