Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mr. Scanlon's class! Mr. Scanlon is a New York native who is happy to be making Florida his new home. He returned to school in 2005 to become a teacher, and he is a 2009 summa cum laude graduate of Stony Brook University's Bachelor program and a 2017 summa cum laude graduate of National Louis University's Master of Educational Leadership program. He is proud to be the first member of his family to obtain a college degree.
In 2016, the Florida Department of Education named him one of the highest impact teachers in the state, based on the performance of his students in the 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 school years. Mr. Scanlon received the “Best and the Brightest” scholarship award from the Florida Department of Education in 2015, 2016, and 2017. And, of course, he was Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" in 2006.
In his largely theoretical spare time, he enjoys reading and photography. He met the future Mrs. Scanlon in 1988. After an extensive vetting process, they wed in 2012. She's not for beginners.
