Hello Dutchtown High Students, Parents and Staff:
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your students education.  I am Ms Laura Varrichio and have been at Dutchtown High School since 2008.  I have taught 3 subjects here at Dutchtown; English, Sciences, and Math. This year I am teaching Environmental Science and Earth Science.  
A bit of information about me.
was born in Middletown Conn., but my father, being a Marine, traveled throughout the US. We finally made our home in Oceanside, California next to Marine Corp base Camp Pendleton in 1962. I attended school from 4th grade through high school in Oceanside and later (in my mid 20's) college.  Going to college took a while as I was raising a family as well. I obtained my AA in Social Welfare at Mira Costa College, and my BA in Education at National University.  I came to Georgia in 2003 to get closer to my daughters family and grandchildren as well as my sister and her family. I attended Clark Atlanta University for my teaching credential and Masters in Interrelated Special Education.
I have 4 children, and 2 cats.  My children are all successful in different careers and my 3 oldest grandchildren are well on their way to getting their own careers started.  My oldest daughter now works for Delta Airlines and her husband works in law enforcement. My oldest son lives in California and does work with government programs on childhood obesit. My second son lives in Los Angeles, California, is an actor and director of off broadway plays. Finally my youngest daughter has a degree in Music.
Two of my grandaughters graduated from Ola High School here in Georgia. My second oldest grandaughter graduated in California. My grandson, age 8, is in school in Virginia. I am extremely proud of my families achievements.
My mini family are my pets. There is Trouble, my gray mischevies cat, who loves to bring me presents (frogs, snakes, mice, rats - you name it - she is a talanted hunter). Bonzi on the other hand is my quiet cat and will not go outside unless I do. They are great company and soooo funny with their antics.
