Welcome to the Scoggins website! I have been teaching for nine years. I am a graduate of Mabank and I am so excited to be back. I received my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas and my masters degree from Southern Methodist University.  On any given weekend you can expect me to be watching Aggie football, hanging out with my three kids, binge watching Netflix, or reading a good book. I love to travel and SCUBA dive. 

 

For the 2017-2018 school year I will be teaching AP Psychology, AP Human Geography, Pre-AP Geography, and AP Macroeconomics. My goals for each and every class is to prepare students for the next life step. In today's world that means thinking critically, solving problems, using technology safely and effectively, goal setting, and writing with purpose.
