Mrs. Laura Van Dyk
Greetings! I am Laura Van Dyk and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! This is my tenth year at Grafton and have loved the students, families, and staff. I have experience teaching 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade at GVES. I grew up in Richfield, Minnesota and attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. After college I taught in Gurnee, IL for seven years, and attained my Masters Degree from Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI with a support in Adaptive Education. My family moved to Virginia in 2010 and we have loved the milder climate!
In my spare time I love to travel, play golf, and spend time with my family. I am also a Harry Potter fan!
