- Classroom Experience -

Scott has spent nearly 1,000 hours in the classroom.  This time was spent with students in kindergarten all the way to seniors in high school.  The experiences gained teaching youth in the classroom will make him the best voice for teachers and their students.  Scott's vision is a school district where every teacher has the tools they need and every student has a learning environment that allows them to grow.
