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.
