Distinguished Highlanders

Scott Brown - staff

Scott began his career in Oak Hills 35 years ago as a computer aide at J.F. Dulles Elementary. Since there were only five Apple 2E’s at that time, and district office kept borrowing three of them, Scott spent time cataloging new books in the library and reading stories to enthusiastic students during library time. He was recruited that same year to cover a long-term substitute position in sixth grade at Springmyer Elementary. This led to a full-time teaching position. While teaching social studies and language arts at Springmyer, Scott also held positions on the PTA board, the Oak Hills Education Association and enjoyed creating the scenery for the plays and musicals. He was named Springmyer PTA Educator of the Year. Springmyer is also where he met his lovely wife Jennifer, who was a second-grade teacher at the school.

Scott joined the Bridgetown staff in 1999 when the district created three middle schools. He continued to teach social studies. Students from past years still reminisce about a favorite activity involving the mummification of one of their classmates. During this time, his dedication to the teaching profession led him to serve as the vice-president and president of the Oak Hills Education Association. In that role, Scott worked closely with teachers and administrators across the district to create a professional working environment. During his tenure as president, he worked on negotiating teacher contracts, tax levy campaigns and finding ways for teachers to adapt to new state mandates.

Although Scott has been very dedicated to the Oak Hills District, he has found time to be active in his church, Shiloh United Methodist. He has served as a middle school youth teacher and made many props and scenery for Vacation Bible School and Christmas pageants.

Scott and Jennifer reside in the Oak Hills community and were proud to send their daughters to Oak Hills schools. As teachers and parents in the district, Scott and Jennifer have seen the high-quality education that children receive in Oak Hills. Scott is both humbled and proud to have been part of such a great institution.
