Mrs. Scott grew up in Wheaton, attending Pleasant Hill, Franklin, and Wheaton North. She still lives in Wheaton with her husband, a WN graduate, and their two sons, both graduates of WN. One of the perks of teaching in the community where she lives is to be able to see so many students navigate through WN, work at local businesses and become adults.
