About Mr. James Scofield

I am a secondary English teacher at a small, rural high school in south central Pennsylvania. I received my undergraduate and Master's degree from The College of William and Mary in Virginia. I taught in North Carolina and Virginia prior to coming to Pennsylvania and have been teaching for over twenty-five years. I believe the first obligation of an American public school is to insure equal access to a free and appropriate education. Academics should be the foremost priority for students and extra-curricular activities, whatever they may be, should not interfere or inhibit a student's academic performance. I believe technology is a wonderful tool when used properly to enhance instruction, but still respect the effectiveness of a passionately delivered lecture and meaningful class discussion.
