Meet our first poet laureate: Laura Sobbott Ross!

At the W.T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora!

Check out her latest poem, "Why You Should Get A Library Card". Video here.

  

Sobbott Ross is a state-certified English teacher and trained writing coach. Much of her career was spent teaching children in the Lake County Schools system. She currently teaches English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to adults and GED prep at Lake Technical College and has experience working with students ages 5 to 91.

“My goal is to get poetry out there, make it accessible and enjoyable,” Sobbott Ross said. “Lake County is artistic. It’s time we uncovered the raw, untapped potential of the people in our community.”

Her recent poem, “The Writing Lesson,” reflects her strong affinity for the Lake County community.
