Hi, I’m Scott Cameron and I've been teaching since 2004.
Over the years, I've discovered that it's not easy to create an engaging and fun activity for students. It's truly an art, and I find that I am most creative after a good conversation with a colleague. I started Teacher's Workshop to extend these kinds of conversations beyond the walls of our schools.
