Ms. Laurie Liefer

Welcome Wildcats!

I am so excited to have the privilege of teaching Humanities, AP European History, and AP World History this school year.  I love history and helping students make connections.  I also have the honor of being the Social Studies Department Chair.

I lived in Minnesota through my freshman year of high school. In Maryland, I finished high school and began college, and then moved to Texas, where I finished college and began my teaching career.   I finished my BA in History and Education at Texas A&M University and completed my MA in Curriculum and Instruction and GT Education at University of North Texas.  I have been teaching in Texas since 1994.  I have taught in Gilmer, Dallas, and Irving.  I have been teaching in PISD since 2001.  I am an avid reader, sports fan, and an animal lover.  I currently live in Plano with my cat, April, who, like my students, makes my day better.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about my classes or any social studies class at Vines High School!  I am here to help.
