Welcome! 

Welcome to my teacher page! I am so pleased to be teaching Ceramics here at Gilbert High School! Ceramics is offered to all grade levels from Clay I-IV plus AP.  We focus on handbuilding techniques in clay as well as throwing on the wheel and sculptural techniques.

About Me

My name is Laura Kawa. I am a native of Arizona and have a degree in Art Education from Arizona State University. I began my teaching career at Mesquite Junior High and then moved to South Valley Junior High before joining the amazing faculty here at Gilbert High School. This is my 9th year of teaching and I am so pleased that I have been able to spend my entire teaching career in the Gilbert District and I hope to stay for many years to come. I I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 years and I have a 13 year old son who currently attends Greenfield Junior High. He is an incredible human being and is extremely involved in the band program with plans to continue that path here at Gilbert High School next year. I have an adorable yellow lab puppy and 3 pugs who provide constant entertainment and tons of love! I love all things art and I am privileged to have the opportunity to share that love of art with my students and watch them grow artistically.
