I have been a part of Meadow Brook Baptist Preschool for the past 15 years. It has been such a blessing to have been able to have taught in the 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s. It was such a tough decision to come out of the classroom and not be able to love my own little class, but now I can love all 120 students each and every day!!

Hello! My name is Laura Kathryn Burch and I am so excited to be teaching at MBBC Preschool. I am from Tuscaloosa, AL and graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) with a degree in human development and family studies. I met my husband, Austin, in college and after we got married we moved to Texas where we resided for 6 1/2 years in various locations. While in Texas we became parents to three amazing boys, Bryan, Brooks, and Benjamin. We have recently moved back to Alabama to be closer to family and are excited to be back home! I enjoy time with family, going on walks/runs, and reading a good book! I look forward to getting to know you and your children this school year!

4 Year Old Teacher
I am so excited to be back at MBBC teaching Spanish and helping with the 4 yr. old classes this year! I am originally from wherever my dad was stationed at the time, but mostly from Maryland and graduated from University of Alabama in 1988. After working in Nashville in Healthcare for 17 years, I met my husband Clark and moved to Birmingham in 2004, then had our lovely daughter, Mia in 2008 (a MBBC graduate). I enjoy traveling with the family, hiking, doggies and reading. Each day, I promise to help make your child’s MBBC experience a wonderful one, where he/she feels safe, comfortable and happy!
