Mrs. Elizabeth Laser-Karesh
My name is Elizabeth Laser-Karesh (the students call me Mrs. Karesh), and I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning in fourth grade this year! My philosophy is to have fun learning, but to teach in a way that the students retain what they learn. I am all about using songs, jingles, and mnemonic devices in the classroom! Hightower is my home away from home, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work here with the fantastic Hightower students.
Outside of school my hobbies are hiking, reading, gardening - any outdoor activity I'm able to do here with my Texas family and friends. My extended family is back in New York, and I do travel to see them whenever I can.
"Don't just follow your dreams, chase them!"
