Welcome To AIS Camp Endeavor!
My name is Dr. Laura A. Bacon. I am excited to be your child's 6th grade General Science and/or Advanced Science teacher this year. I look forward to building relationships with you and your child this school as we Explore and Discover together!
I am beginning my 30th year as an educator in Aiken County Public Schools. I begin my career in 1989 as a 4th grade teacher at Aiken Elementary. I moved to Kennedy Middle School in 1992 where I taught 6th Science and/or Social Studies for sixteen years. I served as an Assistant Principal at Aiken High School from 2009-2012. I served as the Principal of Busbee Elementary/Corbett Middle School from 2012-2016. I served as the ACPS Middle Level Social Studies Content Interventionist for two years from 2016-2018. I retired in November 2017 but wanted to return to my first love—teaching! I am an Aiken native. I am a graduate of USC Aiken and Columbia and Augusta State University. In 2011, I earned my Doctorate in Educational Administration from Georgia Southern University. Education is a lifelong process!
I am married and have two daughters and five granddaughters. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and attending gymnastics competitions with my youngest daughter who is a senior at South Aiken High School.
