Greetings Parents!!

I am Lakita C. Scott and I am elated to be your child's 3rd grade Language Arts/Social Studies Teacher! I am a native of Yazoo City, MS and I graduated from Yazoo City High School.  I have been married for 19 years to my wonderful husband Jeffery Scott, Sr. and we have three beautiful children who are our hearts and souls- Summer (who is currently a freshman at Alcorn State University), Jeffery, Jr. (a junior at Yazoo City High School), and Jordan (a 4th grader at Linwood Elementary School).  In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, shopping, reading, attending church and spending quality time with my family. It is my pleasure to be apart of the Linwood Family!  I expect great things from my students daily!!   If you have any concerns, please contact me at
