English/History/Executive Functioning

Scott has been a classroom teacher for the better part of two decades. In this time, he has worked with thousands of students grade 7 through grade 12. These learners have had a diverse set of academic and emotional needs. Supporting the individual needs of each learner is Scott’s primary objective. His relationship based approach places a heavy emphasis on executive functioning while taking a systematic approach to getting work done. With the right support, guidance and structure, Scott believes there is nothing your child cannot accomplish with the appropriate time and energy.

In his current role, Scott is an upper school educator at Washington International School teaching 10th grade U.S. History and 11th and 12th grade Psychology which is part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. In addition to teaching a number of IB DP courses, Scott has taught Advanced Placement in addition to World History, Ancient and Medieval European History, Geography, and Research and Study Skills courses.

Prior to Scott’s time at Washington International School, he taught 7th and 8th grade Social Studies at the Inspired Teaching Demonstration School, a public charter school in Washington DC. During this time, Scott worked with a diverse set of students using a project based curriculum that relied heavily on research and writing while allotting significant portions of the year to complete National History Day projects. Before coming to Washington DC, Scott was an international educator who spent fourteen years in a number of private international schools around the world. He began his international teaching career at the American School of Guatemala, followed by three years in Cali, Colombia at Colegio Bolivar. From Colombia, Scott moved to Vietnam and taught at the American International School of Ho Chi Minh City before moving to the Philippines and working at Brent International School Manila for six years.
