Laura Robb developed an interest in writing from the early years. Always a rebellious and strong-willed child, she refused to copy teacher-composed stories from the blackboard and imagined her own stories about the animals she dreamed to own, and her own characters. It was a kind of hobby for her and she never shared her literary experiences with anyone.
Robb received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature magna cum laude from the Queens College of the City University of New York in 1959. Later, in 1987, she graduated summa cum laude from Shenandoah University with a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Reading.
In 2008, Laura Robb was honored by a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Humanities from the institution.
Writing become an important element of Laura Robb’s life as soon as she started her career of a teacher in 1964 at Powhatan School, Boyce, Virginia where she also served as curriculum coordinator. In 1983, she was appointed Head of the English department of the institution. Later, Robb joined the staff of Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia where she co-directed poetry and storytelling festivals.
Many educational books, including several anthologies of poetry, in particular, ‘Snuffles and Snouts’ and ‘Music and Drum’, emerged from her teaching experience. The first one appeared while helping a kindergarten class study pigs and the second one evolved from her teaching of a peace studies class to eighth-graders. Nowadays, Laura Robb continues her teaching activity by sharing her rich classroom experience with teachers in grades K to 8 in Virginia, Ohio, and Maine.
Robb is also active as a speaker at various conferences and leads workshops in Canada and around the world. She contributes articles to education journals and manages several blogs related to the topic.
The recent publications of the educator include ‘The Reading Intervention Toolkit’ of 2016 and ‘Read Talk Write: 35 Lessons That Teach Students to Analyze Fiction and Nonfiction’ of 2017.
