Laura Miner

My name is Laura Miner and I am a lifelong resident in Simi Valley. In fact, I was born in Simi hospital. I attended Simi Schools and graduated from Simi High in 1992. I support all of our students in all our High Schools but I am a true Pioneer and bleed Maroon and Gold. I have 3 children Hayden, Carson and Savannah who attend or have attended Simi Schools as well. My Husband Robert is a Ventura County Fire Captain, and is a Royal High Alumni. So you can see our love for this community runs deep.  
After graduating from California Lutheran University I immediately began my teaching career here in Simi Valley in 1997. I have worked at Crestview, Vista, Santa Su, and now here at Sycamore  I have taught grades 2-6 and Kindergarten. When I was in each grade or assignment I thought that grade or assignment  was my favorite and each holds a special place in my heart.  After I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership, I served as a Literacy Coach at Santa Susana Elementary. I am now very proud to be the Principal of Sycamore, which is a great school. 
In my free time I like to be outdoors with my family. We enjoy camping, days at the lake, and taking our Jeep out for a spin.  I am also a lover of all music, and incorporate it into my daily life in one way or another. On any given day you can find me singing with a microphone in my hand. 
I love this position and this is much more than a job to me. I have a passion for education, teaching and leading.

I was born and raised in Altadena, CA.    I came to Sycamore almost 5 years ago and am proud to have the distinction of keeping our campus beautiful.    Being in charge of our campus needs both inside and outside of the classroom definitely keeps me busy!    My daughter Nyla attends Sycamore, and there is no other place that I would want her to be.   She has grown up being part of the Skyhawk family and enjoys every minute of her time here.
