Laurrie Pirrone

First for 29 years.

Alumna, 1974
Middleville, Michigan


Laurrie Pirrone has reached the point in her teaching career in which her classroom includes the children of some of her former students in the Michigan village of Middleville. With 35 years of teaching experience–29 of them spent teaching first grade–Pirrone is one of those teachers whom students–and their parents–never forget.

She is well known and well loved for her extra efforts for students, including making personalized yearbooks and each week treating a student to a special lunch with her at the local pizza place. Every day, Pirrone makes what she describes as “little differences” in children’s lives, and these make all the difference.
