There is so much – where to begin…

Family – without them, I could not do what I do.  They have molded me into who I am.

Students – they never know it, but they breathe life into me every time I am around them.

Colleagues – from all of my schools.  The faculty and staff at each stop of my journey have taught me so much.  Thank you Guthrie High School, Olathe South High School, and Edmond Memorial!  Lifelong friendships were built at each stop.

#Oklaed – this community, full of passion for education, has given me more encouragement than they will ever know.  The ideas that have been shared on #oklaed have impacted people in the most amazing ways.  If you participate in this community, you have made a difference! Thank You!

I am so thankful we live in a place where we can do what we do.  I am thankful for those who sacrifice so much to ensure the freedoms that we have.

Have a blessed thanksgiving!


About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant


One thought on “#Thankful

  1. Some wise person said: “If you’re not learning, you are losing” or something… What a waste of opportunity if we’re not open to learning everywhere. Our interactions through social media, #oklaed and beyond, validate your openness to learning – AND to facilitating others’ doing the same.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you and your family, to all engaged with #oklaed, and anyone reading this post!!!
