Ms. Layne Bell

I am ecstatic to have become a member of the Arts and Communications Academy within Shakopee High School!  I have taught English for nearly 20 years in a variety of grade levels and locations, including internationally.  I love my subject, but what grounds me as an educator is my students.  I look forward to seeing what makes you shine, to developing a solid, safe learning community together, and to embarking on the journey of growth with you.

I will also be guiding students to discover their passion and talent in the Media and Production Arts.  With a background in live T.V. broadcasting, I'll support you as you hone your production talents on and off the screen.

Here's to the best year yet!
