Mr. Scott Shaw

“Our echoes roll from soul to soul and grow forever and ever…”

from The Splendor Falls, Alfred Lord Tennyson

 After spending his formative years on the dusty plains of the Texas panhandle, and a brief time in Tehran, Iran, Mr. Shaw moved to the northeast where he studied literature at Rutgers University. He completed his MA with a concentration in classroom instruction and curriculum at Kean University, and then moved to New York City.  Mr. Shaw moved back to North Jersey and became the first English teacher for the newly formed Full-Time Academy High School here at MCST.  Three years later, he became a supervisor of instruction for the school.  For over two decades, Mr. Shaw has journeyed with students, faculty, and families in public, magnet, career and technical, urban and suburban school settings as a teacher, coach, and administrator. He has served as a middle school principal in Roxbury, NJ and most recently spent the last 5 years as high school principal of an independent school in Raleigh, N.C.  Mr. Shaw has returned to the northeast as an instructional supervisor to continue his passion for learning in a career and technical setting.  He believes wholeheartedly in CTE and is eager to help teachers flourish in their craft

 When not at school, Mr. Shaw can be found fly-fishing the Rio Grande River in southwestern Colorado, unpacking poetry and prose while sipping sweat tea on his porch, and spending quality time with his family.
