Hampton educator recognized as All-Star teacher

Ryan Scott, who teaches at Hampton, with some students and the Pirate Parrot. The group surprised Scott on March 18 when he received the All-Star teacher award.

Ryan Scott, a technology education teacher at Hampton, has received the All-Star teacher award.

Scott was nominated for the award by high school enrichment facilitator Scott Stickney. He nominated Scott for the award because, among other things, “he collaborated with me and numerous other teachers in the building to create individual, small group and large group projects that integrate innovation, promote giving back to the community and maintain an academic rigor seldom seen in what have been termed ‘shop classes.’”

He added that Ryan is committed to bringing 21st century learning skills to life in his classroom and is constantly refining his practice through his own projects and those his colleagues bring to him for assistance.

Representatives from Chevon and the Pittsburgh Pirates Brigade, in conjunction with the Grable Foundation, selected All-Star teachers at the elementary, middle and high school levels from 320 total nominations.

He will be recognized on-screen at PNC Park during the entire month of April, as well as on the field with other winning teachers at the Pirates game on April 7. Scott also received a custom Pirates jersey, a good bag, and a $1,000 donation for use in his classroom.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
