Mrs. Margaret Scott
Mrs. Margaret Scott has been at St. Katharine Drexel School since 1993. She teaches sixth-eighth grade. Mrs. Scott is also the faculty advisor of the SKDS Builders Club and the Administrative Assistant for the Elementary Campus.
Why did Mrs. Scott become a teacher? She stated, “Because I enjoy being with young people and I love learning. Watching and helping young people learn is the greatest.” Her favorite thing about her job is “The wonderful people, students, families and fellow staff members” with whom she works.
Prior to her years at St. Katharine Drexel School, Mrs. Scott taught for six years at Consolidated Catholic Lomira-Theresa. She grew up in Fox Lake, Wisconsin, where she was the youngest of seven children (including five sisters and one brother).
Mrs. Scott is married and has two adult daughters who both attended SKDS. Her older daughter Laura teaches math and her younger daughter Allee is studying to be a primary teacher. Allee also plays volleyball for the University of Wisconsin – Platteville.
Outside of school, Mrs. Scott enjoys doing volunteer service work for her parish and for Kiwanis. Mrs. Scott enjoys traveling. She went to Australia for World Youth Day in 2008, France for World Youth Day in 1997 and Denmark as an AFS student.
In her free time, Mrs. Scott likes walking her dog, doing crafts and playing computer games. Her newest hobby is touring in her husband’s 1957 Thunderbird.
Mrs. Scott’s words of advice for students: “Try many good things and figure out what you really enjoy doing. Then figure out a way to get others to pay you to do it.”
Her favorite quotation: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
