Mrs. Laura Lopez

Welcome to Junior Physical Education 

Hello! I'm Laura Lopez and this is my 8th year teaching Physical Education at Southland College Prep. I am very passionate about personal fitness, athletics, and holistic wellness (yoga, mediation, and mindfulness). In addition to Physical Education, I serve as Southland's Interact Club Co-Sponsor and Fitness Director for our athletic teams.

I obtained my LBS1 endorsement in 2018 from the Unversity of St. Francis.

I graduated from Trinity Chritstian College in 2010 where I majored in Physical Education. While at Trinity I earned the top athletic scholarship for softball as well as 6th in Trinity's career records book in stolen bases. At College of Dupage I was named All-Conference, All Region for two consecutive years, and was a NJCAA All American. In High school I competed as a varsity athlete in cross country, basketball, and of course, softball.

Prior to teaching, I coached softball at College of DuPage and Addison Trail High School and was the Head Softball Trainer at Drive Performance Baseball & Softball Academy. 

I am really excited for this new year and helping you all become your best self!
