Mr. Matthew Scott
I am so excited about getting to know each and everyone of my students this year! Please let me know about things that interest you or spark your curiosity so that I can try to incorporate those things into our class. To that end, I'll let you know a little bit about myself as well.
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree from Eastern New Mexico University where I double majored in Biology and Psychology with a minor in Chemistry. While at ENMU, I was able to develop a true passion for science by working in a laboratory where I studied antibiotic resistance profiles of several species of bacteria. After graduating from college, I worked as a lab analyst for a bovine veterinary practice that specialized in servicing dairy animals. I realized, however, that my true passion was science education so I relocated to San Antonio in order to pursue a teaching career. After teaching for six years at the School of Sciecne and Technology, I decided to join the Science Department at James Madison High School! I am a lifelong learner (as I hope for all of my students to be as well), and I cannot seem to ever truly leave school. I completed a Masters of Education degree at Texas A&M University (Gig 'Em!) in Educational Technology in December of 2016.
My wife and I have one daughter who was born on May 2, 2014. We also have a cat (Loki) and a dog (Lucy). In my free time, I enjoy cooking, watching TV/movies, playing board games, playing with our pets, and reading. If there is anything else that you would like to know about me, please feel free to ask!
