Laura Alpaugh has worked as a clinical instructor and professional development schools (PDS) coordinator for Loyola since 2013. Prior to working at Loyola, Alpaugh taught for nine years in Harford County Public Schools, where she also served as a mentor teacher and site coordinator. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Stevenson University and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Notre Dame of Maryland University. Part of her role at Loyola is to develop partnerships between Loyola’s School of Education and local public and non-public schools to help students in the Master of Teaching (MAT) program receive mentorship and hands-on experience. Her passion for helping other teachers and providing mentorship guided her to her position at Loyola. “I do believe that our candidates are fully prepared to enter the profession following our program, however, they need support systems,” says Alpaugh. Her favorite part of Loyola is getting to know her students on a personal level and observing their growth, from when they start the program to when they graduate.
