Laura Morrison ’03, Directress CH IV

We often say at MSR that the school is our legacy, a gift handed down through generations.  As Laura Morrison, Class of ’03, describes her path to teaching, the concepts of legacy and inheritance begin to form.  “My mom went to a Montessori school,” she says, adding that her grandmother had her doctorate in child development and taught in a Montessori training center in New York State. It is no surprise then that Laura was brought to MSR when she was two years and nine months, and, says, Laura, “My mother sort of finagled me into Children’s House even though I wasn’t yet three.”

Laura and MSR were a good match and she continued through sixth grade. That was in 1996, three years before MSR’s Middle School was created. She explains that she and her classmates didn’t want to leave and begged teachers to “start a make-shift seventh grade,” but the time was not right, and she moved on to a public middle school in the area.  From there Laura enrolled in an IB magnet high school because she had her heart set on attending UNC and knew the IB credentials would increase her chances.  She was correct; she was offered admission and entered Carolina in the fall of 2003.
