Mrs. Laurie Slaughter

    Welcome to sixth grade! My name is Mrs. Slaughter. This will be my eighteenth year teaching. I have grown up in the Lugoff-Elgin area. I am a graduate of Lugoff-Elgin High School. I then went on to graduate Cum Laude from Columbia College w/ a BA in Elementary Education. After teaching for quite a few years, I then proceeded to earn my Master's in Instructional Accommodations from Francis Marion University. 

    My family and I reside in the town of Elgin. I married my high school sweetheart, Jacob Slaughter. The two of us have two wonderful children. Our son, Zachary, is a ninth grade student at Lugoff-Elgin High School and our daughter, Emma Grace, is a fifth grade student at Blaney Elementary School. I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, and traveling.

    I am looking forward to teaching your student this school year. As I mentioned before, I love to read. I hope to create a love for reading in each one of my students. Reading is an essential part to how we learn. Reading certainly takes you places!
