Laura Ballard

Junior Level Art, Upper Level, and Middle School Art

Laura graduated with a BS in Art Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Since then she has worked with children in a variety of ways including teaching environmental education, English in Italy, and on a school farm. Prior to coming to EAC Montessori Laura taught studio art and house parented at North Country School, a boarding school in Lake Placid. Laura is thrilled to be teaching art full time again and to be surrounded by such a beautiful school community. Outside of teaching, Laura is a fiber artist focused on taking wool through the process from sheep to finished piece of art. She also works at Windsong Farm, her source for wool and sells their wares at the Ithaca Farmers Market. Laura lives with her husband Zac in Danby where they raise chickens for eggs and angora rabbits for amazing fiber and incredible cuteness.
