Hello, my name is Scott Thomas and I am proud to be a part of the Byers School District since 2019. I love the small-town atmosphere, I grew up in Fowler, Colorado. I attended Otero Junior College for my Associate of Arts Degree in General Studies. Then, I transferred up to the University of Northern Colorado and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and a minor in Secondary Education in 2015. From there, I went to Colorado State University-Pueblo and received my teaching license. I have taught at the Custer County School District teaching 6th-12th Grade, and 10th-12th Grade at Las Animas High School.
This year I am teaching 7th Grade Geography, 8th Grade American History, HS American History, JH Enrichment, and have sophomores in 8th Hour. Some other activities I have the privilege of being a part of is that I am a Sophomore class co-sponsor with Mr. Mahoney. Also, I am the JH/HS Knowledge Bowl Sponsor. I also have the privilege of being an assistant coach in football and baseball. It is great getting to see the kids in different activities all throughout the year.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family in southeast Colorado. I also love attending sporting events and traveling anywhere. I am a die-hard Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Falcons fan, so I like to watch their games. I am a history nut, so anywhere I can go to study history, I am there. I am excited to go on the trip to Greece this summer and hopefully many more in the future.
