My name is Scott Larter and I am the RTI Behavior Coach and Athletic Coordinator here at DVMS. I try to incorporate as much real life situations into my class to make the learning much more meaningful.
My philosophy is to make every single person I come in contact with successful. I do my absolute best to help each person I meet in whatever area they need help with. I want to teach the unfaithful to be strong, teach the ungraceful to forgive, and love the unloving. I believe that we have to all work together to make this happen, so I do my absolute best to incorporate as much group work as possible. My students are to help each other in and out of the classroom in order for us all to be successful.
This is my 12th year as a teacher, my 8th at DVMS. Previously I worked at a charter school in downtown Phoenix as a teacher. Before that I worked at Adobe Mountain School as a Youth Corrections Officer.
