Rob Scott appointed assistant principal at Groveton Middle-HS


May 30, 2012
GROVETON — Rob Scott of Lancaster will start his new job as the assistant principal on July 1 at the Groveton Middle-High School.

Scott, a 1999 graduate of White Mountains Regional High School, earned his Bachelor's degree in the first class (2007) of the North Country Teacher Certification program, a collaboration among Plymouth State University (PSU), White Mountains Community College and Granite State College. That program, launched in the fall of 2005, runs on a two-year cycle with three semesters of course work and one of student teaching.

Scott has worked at the Lancaster School for six years: first as a computer lab assistant, then for two as a seventh-grade math teacher, and finally three years as its math specialist. He has nearly completed his Master's in Education degree with a concentration in School Leadership (MEd.), including principal certification, at the Upper Valley Educators Institute (UVEI) in Lebanon.

Scott will also teach math at Groveton, he said, pointing out that he has long been interested in teaching. When he was a WMRHS senior, he "job-shadowed" Dr. Carl Ladd, then an eight-grade LES social studies teacher and now SAU #58 superintendent.

WMCC Teacher Prep Professor Deb Stewart who taught Scott for two years recalled her student in an e-mail exchange, "Rob is goal-oriented and is both sincere and very passionate about 'making a difference' in the educational world. It's great to hear that he will serve as an assistant principal in Groveton; he is the first of three cohorts to enter the administration field." Stewart said that she used to enjoy talking with him about her days as principal of the Milan Village School (MVS).
