S2E21: Blow Up The Box

Ryan Scott

Relationships are what most inspire me on a day-to-day basis; adult/students/community members/parents. Also, I LIVE to BLOW up the box. If schooling looks exactly like we lived through, something is wrong.

I can also talk about the life-changing effects of mistakes. When I was 22, I became a day unexpectedly and that COMPLETELY changed the course of my life. This is why I LOVE my students that come to us with challenges.

Proud #girldad of 4 and husband of a spunky redhead! Spent 10 years in elementary land as a teacher and 2 years as a principal. For the past 2 years, I have been a high school AP where I have learned that even if they are bigger, hairier and look like adults, high school is still full of kids that want to be valued, seen, and heard!

My unconventional path to education led me to see “struggles” as “opportunities” and the “challenging kids” as just kids with “challenges”!

As the host of The bigEDidea Podcast, I hope to connect the visions of one, with the passions of another. It is only through building connections, that the world can truly be changed!
