Mrs. Laura Hervey
As an Akron alum, I am excited to be teaching 9th grade English at Akron High School. Prior to working in public education, I taught in private education for 15 years. I have also tutored writing at Medaille College for 11 years. As an author and lover of literature, I hope to inspire my students to become lifelong readers.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family, especially my grandchildren. In the summer, we enjoy heading over to Delaware Park for the Shakespeare Festival or to the beach to soak up the sun or to cool off on a hot day. My German shepherd and I like to exercise together, but we're still working on loose-leash walking with a plan for running together in the future.
Whenever I need inspiration, I spend the day at an art show, art gallery, or a museum. I also play the piano and listen to music from classical to jazz. Taking photos in the golden light or the morning or early evening also energizes me as a teacher and an author.
