Ms. Laurie Liefer

Welcome Vikings!

I am so exicted to have the privilege to teach Humanities and World Geography this school year.  I love history and helping students make connections.  I also have the honor of being the Social Studies Department Chair.

I have lived in Minnesota through my freshman year of high school, in Maryland 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 Univeristy and completed my MA in Curriculum and Instruction and GT Education at Universuty 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.
