About Your Teacher

Welcome to 4th grade!  My name is Mrs. Lora L. Wilson-Carter.  I am married to Dale Carter, a retired Fredonia High School teacher.  He currently farms and ranches.  We live on a farm just a mile east of Fredonia, on Highway 47.  I have lived in Fredonia since 1982, coming to Kansas from Southern California by way of Adak, Alaska.  I love my adopted state and believe it to be one of the best places to live.  

My husband and I have six children and ten (soon to be twelve!) grandchildren.  Family, faith, and school are the biggest and most important parts of our lives.

This summer has been a busy one for me!  On May 25, 2012, we were blessed with the birth of our twin grandchildren, Kyrion and Kaleesi Denham.  They are so cute!  I spent most of my summer up in Lawrence, Kansas, helping take care of them and their brothers, Isaiah and Sabian, and sister, Jaevyn.  So, it was a busy summer!  I hope you have tales to tell of your summer, as I do.

This is my 7th year teaching 4th grade, but my 14th year teaching at Altoona Midway Schools.  I taught special education, then moved to 4th grade.  I hope you are as excited about 4th grade as I am.  I also hope you know how happy I am that you are in my class this year.  We will have an incredible adventure.  Remember:  Be your best; do your best!
