Ms. Laguna’s hobbies are reading books and art. She loves to draw, paint, garden, and spend time outdoors. A fact about Larisa is that she went through the education system as an ESL student. “I can personally relate to many of our students’ struggles. I have made it my mission in life to help and positively affect as many lives as possible,” she stated. Larisa chose education because “this is a career that provides the opportunity and privilege to impact and make a difference in the lives of our children and young adults.
