Mr. Layne Scholl is very excited about teaching science and math this Fall at Saint Theresa Catholic School. He grew up in Indiana and completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at Indiana University, where he earned a B.S. in Geology and a M.A. in Geophysics. After graduating, Mr. Scholl worked in the oil industry for Chevron where he lived in Denver, Calgary, New Orleans, and finally ended up in Houston/Katy, where he has lived for the past 32 years. He is married with three children.
Mr. Scholl discovered a love for teaching while tutoring his fellow dormmates in mathematics. His confrères would often ask him, “Why didn’t the professor explain it like this?” Mr. Scholl tries to explain concepts in various ways so students with different learning styles can understand the core principles. His goal is for the students to understand not only the concepts, but why and how we use them in real-world scenarios. He has taught geology and math at the college level by teaching math and geology at the college level for Lone Star, Houston Community College, and Blinn College.
Mr. Scholl was drawn to Saint Theresa’s faith-based, classical program. He feels that Saint Theresa’s provides an outstanding foundation both spiritually and academically for all students. He believes that by combining both intellectual curiosity and faith, students will benefit both now and throughout their lifetime.
