Making GATOR History!
My name is Dr. Laura A. Bacon. I am excited to be your child's 6th grade Gator Greatness and 6th grade Science and/or Advanced Science teacher this year. I look forward to building relationships with you and your child this school year! Though this is my first year teaching 6th grade at Aiken Middle School, this is my 29th year as an educator in Aiken County Public Schools (ACPS). 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! Let's Make GATOR History!!
