Laura Finley Assistant Director, Preschool
Laura grew up in Burleson and graduated from Burleson High School. She began working in the child care profession in 1987. Throughout her career she has taught preschoolers from infants to age 5 while working at Burleson First Baptist Mother’s Day Out, First United Methodist Preschool Burleson and Crowley United Methodist Preschool. She also substituted many years for the Burleson ISD in Life Skills and grades K-5. Additionally, Laura held the positions of Assistant Director (2004-2009) and Director (2009-2012) at Crowley United Methodist Preschool.
At the end of the 2012 school year, Laura “retired” from Crowley United Methodist Preschool to enjoy some family time and help care for her newborn granddaughter. She was excited to return to First United Methodist Preschool as one of the Assistant Directors when the position was offered to her in 2014. Now, her grandchildren, Avery and Hudson, attend preschool with her!
Laura and her husband Robert live in Burleson. They have 2 grown daughters, Melissa and Rebecca, who attended Crowley United Methodist Preschool when they were children. Both are now teachers in the Burleson school district.
