The Owl

Mrs. Laura Cottrill

Mrs. Laura Cottrill, Adviser

Teaching is my passion. Whether it is facilitating an English class Socratic Seminar or advising The Owl newspaper, I love what I do. I am married to Kevin, SHS Band Director, for nearly twenty-four years, and we have three children: Harrison, IU freshman; Will, junior; and Katie, 8th grader. Major is my sweet and challenging seven-year-old black lab mix, and a new kitty, Calypso, lives in our home. A graduate of Purdue and Columbus North, my heart also belongs to the Seymour Owls. Please contact any staff member with stories you want to read. Let's have a great year, SHS!
