Lauri Quick

Drama Teacher

BS in Secondary Education with Emphasis in English

M.Ed in Media, Design & Technology


I have the wonderful opportunity to teach several different classes here at Somerset College Prep, the flexibility of my schedule allows me to keep fresh new ideas exploding in my mind and to stay away from the land of complacency. In the Fall my schedule seems to focus on different Theater Classes while the Spring brings in Debate and Musical Theater.

 I use Google Classroom to distribute assignments, materials, and feedback to the various activities. The grades do get into Skyward when everything is finalized. I often times do allow students to submit an assignment early to get feedback in order to improve or make needed changes before the final grade hits Skyward.

 When I focus on Technology in my classes, I do offer After School tutoring or Lunch Time Tutoring if it has been scheduled in advance.

I graduated from Florida State University in 1993 with a B.S. degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English.  While I was on the hunt for the proverbial dream job, I was a substitute teacher throughout Leon and Wakulla counties from 1993-1996, did different temporary positions until 1997, it was then I became an English teacher for 9th and 10th grades, and the Newspaper sponsor.  At the end of that year, I went looking once more.

I found myself at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches in the Camping Services working  in their Leadership Retreat for Middle Schoolers doing Project Harmony.  I began work in 1998 and left in 2015, there I learned more about myself and abilities as the Assistant Camp Director, Director of Mobile Camp and Director of Youth Camp.  I travelled the State of Florida recruiting summer camp staff, participating in workshops in State and National American Camp Association conferences, creating curriculum, purchasing supplies and training staff members to keep in mind they were out representing the 67 sitting Sheriffs and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. While at the Youth Ranches, I returned to school and received a Master of Education in Media, Design and Technology from Full Sail University (Dec 2013).

As my time ended at camp, I felt it was time to take what I had learned and apply it to the classroom once more. I re-entered the classroom maintaining the Virtual Classroom in 2016 with Wakulla County in their Pathways program.  The spirit of learning and looking for adventure still was with me, and so I left at the end of this school year and fell into a new adventure, working in a prison setting. This adventure was one that I will never forget and will cherish in my professional development.  The year ended and the adventure bug still hadn’t left me and so in 2019 I packed my bags into my Forte and came here to St. Lucie County to join Somerset College Prep Academy.
