Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Laura Whitten

I teach German 3 Honors, German 4 AP and US History and I'm really looking forward to working with your kids this year!

This is my ninth year teaching at Plano East, my fifteenth year teaching overall.

My education includes:

  • Master of Arts degree in German from the University of Texas at Austin 
  • Bachelor of Arts degree in German from Baylor University 

I have lifetime Texas teaching certifications in both German and History.

I truly enjoy teaching and teenagers and am excited about meeting and getting to know your kids! Outside of the classroom, I have been married for thirty years and have three grown children (no grandchildren yet!), and a seventeen year old cat!. My hobbies include travelling abroad, watching football, reading (usually in German), playing the piano, horseback riding and gardening. As the new and ever-evolving school year gets underway, I look forward to exploring German and US History and discovering interesting and intriguing things about each one!
