Mrs. Skoczylas


Hi! :) My name is Laura Beth Skoczylas. This is my 12th year teaching and this is my 7th year teaching at MES. Although I have only been teaching at Meadow for 7 years, I am actually a Meadow Alumni. GO INDIANS! I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Elementary Education with a certification in K-12 Reading. 

I was born and raised in the Meadow community and I currently reside in Meadow with my husband, Jake, and my 2 boys, Finley & Grainger. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing with my husband and enjoying my 2 boys. I also have 3 dogs. Bella, Sadie and Bunny. Lastly, we have one cat and her name is Meadow. 

I look forward to meeting each and everyone of my students at Meadow School. Meadow is such a wonderful place to be and a wonderful place to grow and learn.
