Mrs. Laura Kovatch, Fourth Grade

Hi! My name is Laura Kovatch and I teach fourth grade Language Arts and Science. This is my eleventh year here at St. John Fisher, and I feel so lucky to be part of such a wonderful school community. Outside of school, I love to travel and spend time with my family, especially my beautiful daughter Katelyn. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year together!

Here are some pictures of our 4th grade scientists working in the science lab.  We learned all about the different equipment and vocabulary that scientists use in their investigations.   We even conducted our own investigation to practice using the vocabulary we learned.
