My name is Laura Drugan. I am very excited join the incredible SMG family. I am the homeroom teacher for 6th grade. I am also responsible for Language Arts for the 5th – 8th grade.
I grew up in nearby Franklin Park and still have many friends and family in the community. I graduated with a BS in Marketing and Advertising from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 2000.
After over a decade of working in television advertising at a leading advertising agency in Chicago, I decided to pursue my passion for learning. I recently graduated from National Louis University with a Master Degree in Education. I have endorsements in Middle School Language Arts and Social Sciences. I also have many credits toward Drama, Music, and Spanish.
My husband and I currently live in the Northwest side of Chicago with our two young sons. My family inspires me every day to be the best mother, wife, educator and person I can be. My biggest role model is my mother who taught me the true meaning of unconditional love.
I love to read and cannot wait to share my passion for reading with my students. As Dr. Seuss once said, “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
