Ms. Laura Costa
I graduated from East Carolina University in 1993, with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I continued my education and received my Master's in 1994. I taught third grade at Cooper Elementary for 2 years. I taught second grade at East Clayton Elementary for 9 years before becoming a Dixon Road Dragonfly. I have enjoyed teaching both second and first grades here at Dixon Road. I have been teaching in Johnston County Schools over 20 years. I live in the Dixon Road community and have 2 sons who attended Dixon Road and are now at West Johnston High School.
