Mrs. Mollenkopf

My name is Laurie Mollenkopf.

I teach Jr. High and High School Band as well as Jr. High and High School Choir.  My goal as an educator is to foster a love for music and making music with your children that will stay with them for their lifetime.

I am a graduate of La Vernia High School and Texas Tech University.  I was valedictorian of my high school class in 1989.  My degree from Texas Tech is a Bachelor of Music with Teacher Certification in All-level Music.  I also have a Generalist Certification for grades 4-8.

I am married to my high school sweetheart.  He has a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Tech, and a Master's degree in Engineering Management from Southern Methodist.  He works in Civil Service.  We have 3 biological children--twins (a daughter and a son) born in 1996, a daughter born in 2005,  and 1 adopted son born in 1985.  We also have a granddaughter born in 2011. 
We stay busy as a family, and I am a super proud momma.  I would say my favorite "hobby" is just being around the people that I love, and spending quality time with them.  I love to laugh and "cut up," and I generally have a running commentary on any given subject (meaning, I LOVE to talk).

I am the choir director at First Baptist Church, here in La Vernia, and my husband is on staff there as the Media Coordinator.  

If I can help you with anything, please don't hesitate to contact me, and I will get back with you as soon as I am able.  My schedule is listed below.  My email address is, and my office phone number is 830-779-6630 X3295.  I look forward to serving and working with you and your children.
