Scott’s Learning Resources

Before joining the TIE team as a Learning Specialist in 2008, I spent 6 years as a high school English, drama and speech teacher in Texas, Nebraska and Colorado, and taught 10 years as a full time English and English Education professor at York College in York, Nebraska, at Black Hills State University, and at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas. I hold an M.A. in English Curriculum and Instruction and a Ph.D. in English Creative Writing, both from the University of Nebraska– Lincoln. I also spent about 3 years as the Executive Director of a youth and family camp in the Rockies of Northern New Mexico. I’m a published poet, writer and songwriter and do most of my best thinking while hiking Black Hills trails with my wife Sheryl and our dogs Abbey, Ellie and Oscar.
