About Scott

I am a recently RIF'd social studies teacher with 10 years of full-time teaching experience. I am licensed to teach all social studies courses (such as history, government, and anthropology), but also have an extensive background in reading and writing through my work with the National Writing Project and National Reading Initiative. In fact, I have spoken at national conferences for both organizations. I have also been awarded the Golden Apple for being voted best teacher at my last school.
