Hi my name is Laura Scull. I’ll be co-teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts this year with the wonderful Kerey Moore. I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. I grew up in the northern Reno area and attended North Valleys High School. I have wanted to be a secondary teacher or counselor since as far back as I can remember. Sometimes even Dean Scull has crossed my mind. I attended Truckee Meadows Community College before finishing my Bachelors at the University of Nevada, Reno. It has taken me a little extra time to complete my degree as traveling is a passion of mine and I take every opportunity to explore new places whenever I have the means to do so. This past summer I finally made my way to Cabo San Lucas for a little adventure with my boyfriend Josh. Other places I have ventured to include Xi’an, Frankfurt, Berlin, Heidelberg, Rhodes, Rota, and many of the states here in America. Other than traveling I enjoy camping, hiking, playing volleyball and making my way up to Lake Tahoe as much as I possibly can. My sister Sarah and her husband Richie just had their second son this summer and I plan to spend as much time with my nephews, Danny and Luke, as I can. I look forward to a very exciting first year teaching at Dilworth STEM Academy as I completed my student teaching here this past spring and already very much feel a part of this family and I look forward to making my students feel the same way.
