Mrs. Laura Feehery
Mrs. Laura Feehery has been an IB Economics and IB Global Politics teacher at the Downingtown STEM Academy since 2018.
Prior to teaching at the Dowingtown STEM Academy, Mrs. Feehery began teaching in DASD in January 2004, starting her tenure at Downingtown Middle School for nearly 8 wonderful years. After taking a few years off for her own "little children" at the time, she happily returned to Downingtown as a 9th grade Eastern Civilizations teacher at Downingtown East High School. She made her final move to the STEM Academy, where she is extremely happy to call her 'final home' among wonderful friends, staff, administration and incredible students!
Outside of reading up on the latest Economics and Global Politics news and updates, Mrs. Feehery thoroughly enjoys running, working out, meditation, gardening, organizing, reading and all things summer! She is an active long-distance runner (love my Peloton) and enjoys participating in various competitions. As her students know, she has a love for plant life, even though it may not manifest itself so well in the classroom!
Mrs. Feehery grew up in Delco, but now lives in West Chester with her wonderful husband of 15+ years, who works for a financial firm in IT and Cyber Security. She also has two amazing children, Ryan and Allison, who both attend Fugett Middle School in West Chester. They are active swimmers and track athletes. Mrs. Feehery is also a VERY proud owner/pet mama of the sweetest Goldendoodle, Molly. Just look around her room to see her adorable pictures!
**My goal for you - learn more than you knew from each lesson taught; apply the concepts in a new, introspective way; work with new peers to make new friends while gaining others' perspectives, and have fun along the way!
