Meet the Teacher Meet the Teacher

Welcome to my site! My name is Laura Stluka, and I'm a graduate of Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State University). I am married to Thomas Stluka and we have two children, Trevor and Ashley. Although I wasn't raised in Shiner, I moved here twenty-nine years ago and am proud to call it home.

I love teaching - especially jr. high students! It is NEVER boring! I teach English to 7th graders and Language Arts to 8th graders. I've been teaching long enough that I've had the tremendous blessing of teaching the children of those I've taught.

For the past 21 years, my husband and I have spent our time away from school  supporting our kids with their many activities. Now that both of our kids have graduated from Shiner High School, we are in transition. We now have more free time to spend on our interests. I plan to do more reading and crafting. I also enjoy spending time cooking and baking. I'm hoping to visit Costa Rica this year on a mission trip so reviewing Spanish is on my to-do list plus I want to learn how to complete simple knitting projects.  Of course, my husband and I are planning to visit Austin during the next four years as our daughter will be attending The University of Texas at Austin.

If your child is in my class, please feel free to contact me with questions and/or concerns. You may e-mail me at lstluka@shinerisd.net or text me at 293-0437.  Regular communication between home and school leads to more success in the classroom as well as less stress at home.  By the way, I'm an "early-to-bed, early-to-rise" person so please don't call after 9:00 p.m.

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child!
