My name is Laura Vazquez and I am Kistler Elementary new School/Community Liaison. I
come from Brooklyn, NY and received a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from CUNY Lehman
College. Prior to accepting the new position, I worked with pre-kindergartners as a teacher’s
assistant at St. Nicks – St. Mary’s Catholic School in Wilkes Barre. The new experience gave me
the opportunity to help children learn and grow confidently to become good learners. The
passion I developed working with children gives me the opportunity to integrate my background
experience of working with those in need and make use of what I learned as a teacher's assistant.
I'm eager to work in a school environment where I can be of assistance, provide support services
for children, whose education may be affected by outside factors, and to bridge the gap between
home, school, and community.
