Meet our Team: Laurin Shealy (’82)
as the middle school math teacher, What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love teaching the same students in both seventh and eighth grades. The growth I witness over those two years is amazing.
as a Charleston day alumna, what was your favorite CDS tradition?
That would definitely be having the red team and blue team. I was on the red team, and I still remember which team everyone in my class was on. We did almost everything divided into those two teams.
What is your favorite book?
The absolute best book I have ever read is To Kill a Mockingbird. I love everything about it. I read it again about every two years.
Who is your hero and why?
My hero is my dad. He was a kind, funny, God-fearing man. He adored my mom and was an example of the type of husband I wanted to find.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is Disney World! My family can’t get enough.
I was on the red team, and I still remember which team everyone in my class was on.
