Laura Kang, Head of School, Eagle Cove School – Pasadena, MD Laura Kang is Head of School at Eagle Cove School. The School’s mission is to maintain a culture of academic excellence as we foster within students respect, responsibility, joy in lifelong learning and habits of environmental and community stewardship. In her nearly 30 years in independent school education, she has learned how important it is to keep the entire course of a child’s personal and educational development in mind: past, present and future. From working with toddlers to seniors in high school, she has become fascinated with the intersection of neuroscience and best teaching and learning practices. Laura finds herself attracted to independent schools as they are mission and values-driven institutions. Before joining the Eagle Cove Community, Laura was Middle School Head at Severn School. She attended the University of Kansas’ School of Education for her undergraduate degree in education and English. She received her Masters in Administration and Supervision at Loyola College.
