Spotlight on Mrs. Scott

 

This week I had the amazing opportunity to interview Mrs. Scott she has been working at Davis High School

for 13 long years. I would recommend that everyone gets the chance to meet her at least once during their high school years. She is a study skills teacher and she only works with seniors, she helps to get them all on track for graduation! She’s a very sweet and understanding person and she’ll make sure each and everyone of her students makes it. her classroom is located in the 1400 hall. Everyone is welcomed to go in during lunch.
