Mrs. Shawn Laxson

This is my 15th year teaching science at North Augusta High School. 

I received a Biology degree in 2002 from Augusta State University and soon went off into the world of research. I had a job for a Fortune 500 company doing research and reforestation on pine trees. After gettting injured on that job, I had to rethink just what I wanted to do with my life. One of my son's current teachers from NAHS then suggested that I get certified to teach and that led me to complete the PACE program where I became highly qualified to teach science.

I have been married to the love of my life for 24 years now. We have two adult children and four grandchildren! Charlie is 10, Norah is 5, Liam is 3, and Lachlyn is almost 2. They are our pride and joy!

I love the fall. It is my favorite time of the year! I am crazy about music, cats, the color purple, and the band Bon Jovi! I read as much as I can for pleasure and I prefer science fiction and fantasy. I am a BIG Marvel fan as well.
