Hi, I’m Scott Cameron and I want to make life easier for new teachers. I remember how hard it was to balance life with work and I'm here to provide you with some helpful advice about how to get the most out of your first years of teaching.
I've spent most of my teaching career with seniors at Princeton High School in New Jersey, but I have experience teaching in Philadelphia and with all grade levels. Some of the lessons I learned early in my career have stuck with me over the years. I'm here to share those experiences and put you on the fast track to excellence.
