Ms. Scott definitely knows a thing or two about fitness. A three-time Olympian in the 1500 and 3000 metre events, and winner of the New York Mile, she’s passionate about promoting a life-long interest in physical activity. She loves it when girls beat their own personal goals in class, priding participation and effort most of all. She likes how the students at SMS genuinely want to learn different sports and activities, without feeling like it has to be a competition.
Outside of class, Ms. Scott coaches the cross-country and track teams. She really enjoys the warm and welcoming atmosphere at the school and, having taught most grades, enjoys getting to know the students. She also likes celebrating holidays at SMS, such as Christmas or Halloween, because of how everyone gets together in a light and fun way.
Why SMS? “SMS is an optimal environment to teach and learn in. From the beautiful setting, to our keen and diverse students, to the amazing facilities and dedicated staff it is a privilege to be here. It is a happy, productive and fulfilling experience to be apart of. Everyone is a welcome and valued member of our community while individuality is supported and encouraged.”
