Hello, amigos! I hope you're well. My name is Scott Blevens. I was born and raised in La Junta, Colorado. I've been in Fort Collins since 1993. I'm married with 3 children.
I have a Bachelor's degree from CSU. After graduating there, I moved over to University of Northern Colorado to get my teaching certificate. I started teaching at Preston in 2001. I earned my Master's degree in Curriculum Design from Arkansas State University in 2016.
Teaching has been a passion of mine even before I had my degree. I have coached wrestling in Poudre School District since 1994. I love sharing my knowledge with young people whether it's on the mat or in a classroom.
I truly enjoy reading. I've read the entire Harry Potter series, Percy Jackson and several others. My two favorite reads from this summer were: Have you seen Luis Velez and A Man called Ove.
Growing up in Colorado has allowed me to pursue my two favorite hobbies: skiing and fly fishing. My family and I try to go skiing as much as possible during the winter. It's a little humbling how quickly my children became better skiers than I am. During the warmer months, I love to fly fish. You could say I'm a bit obsessed with it I suppose.
I teach Spanish 1a and 1b. My classroom is quite interactive with several changes happening throughout the period. We usually change up the delivery method every 10-15 minutes which allow all types of learners to be successful.
