Mrs. Laurie Pepper

Welcome to BES fourth grade! My name is Laurie Pepper, and this begins my 22nd year as a teacher!  I am confident that THIS year will be the BESt yet!  I have experience teaching first grade, second grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade!  I LOVE the age group of upper elementary!  The children are such hard workers, and they are so fun to work with.  I'm very excited to teach math and science to all fourth graders this year.  Working with Mrs. Ouzts, who will teach ELA and Social Studies, will surely make for a great year!

I grew up in New Bern, and I received my teaching degree from East Carolina University (AARRRGGHH!). 

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.  You can email me anytime at  I will reply within 24 hours.

I am looking forward to a great year!
