Originally from Great Britain, Carol Scott now calls Alaska home. Carol has always loved learning about the natural world, and is passionate about sharing and learning with students. Although Carol has worked as a high school and junior high school classroom science teacher for 18 years, she came to teaching through her work with students in field science and trail construction programs. She constantly tries to incorporate ways to get her current Fairbanks junior high school students outdoors, and engaged in relevant, hands-on learning.
When not working with students, Carol tends to spend as much time as she can hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, skiing or floating. She is also a small aircraft pilot, and has worked as a backpacking and rafting guide in Alaska's amazing Brooks Range.
