After his first year of teaching in Spirit Lake, Iowa, Scott joined the Peace Corps and spent the next three years teaching English in Opole, Poland. He then worked for a few years as a high school English teacher in a traditional setting in Foley, Mn. He soon became restless with that educational model and found himself in need of a change. That wanderlust brought him to Akita, Japan where he spent three more years in yet another unique teaching and learning setting abroad. He and his son Thomas (2013 Artech grad and student at MCAD) found Northfield in 2004 and Scott has loved being a member of the Arcadia community as a Language Arts teacher and Advisor ever since. In spite of recent years, he remains a loyal Twins fan.
