Meet Mrs. Laura

Hi everyone! My name is Laura Bonnoitt and I am so excited to be teaching Pre-K at the ELC this year!  I am looking forward to a great year together! I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.

 I graduated from LSU with a degree in Elementary Education and have taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade.  I have also taught English in China.   I love teaching and seeing students light up when they understand a new concept.  

 We moved from Baton Rouge to Ft. Worth last fall. Geaux Tigers!!  My husband, Ernie, is the College Pastor at McKinney Church. We have a little boy, Jackson, who is 1 year old and makes our lives so fun!  We also have a lab, Jamie, who is 14 years old!  Although we have only been here a year, it already feels like home.   

Some things I love are...running, reading, drinking coffee, travelling,  or just relaxing at home with Ernie and Jackson.  I love college ministry and enjoy working alongside my husband whenever possible!  I am looking forward to a great year together!


Meet Mrs. Jen

Hello!  My name is Jennifer Felker, and I am excited to have the privilege of teaching your child this year! 

I enjoy working with young children and love seeing them learn and grow!  This will be my fourth year to teach at the ELC.  I have a BA in Family Psychology from Oklahoma Baptist University and worked for 4 years with the Head Start program before having my own children. 

My husband, Jay, and I have been married for 11 years.  We are originally from Oklahoma, and have been in Fort Worth now for 4 years. Jay is on staff as a pastor here at Mckinney.  We feel blessed to be a part of this church.

 We have 2 wonderfully busy boys, Hudson (6) and Athan (4).  Hudson has graduated from the ELC and now attends elementary school.  Athan will be in pre-k this year, so I get to be a pre-k parent alongside you as well!

 A few favorites of mine…I love spending time with my extended family (I have 7 little nieces and nephews), and I enjoy outings with my boys.  We love exploring Fort Worth and a new favorite of ours is trying out all the amazing taco places in town.
