I'm Scotty Feltman and I teach 5th grade at Avondale Elementary. This is my 7th year at Avondale and I enjoy it more and more every year. I currently teach social studies and science. Books are one of the main reasons that I pursued the teaching profession. I love reading anything and everything I can get my hands on and I try to share that passion with my students. I've always been intrigued by how and why things work the way they do and teaching science allows me to share this enthusiasm as well. When I'm not teaching spending time with my family: my wife, Julie, our son, Samuel and our dogs, Audrey and Bishop. I enjoy reading, rock climbing and gardening. You can see me and my students from time to time in the garden at school.
My goal as a teacher is to ignite a passion for learning in my students. I want them to push themselves to learn and discover something everyday. Because 5th grade is departmentalized, we cover a large area of content each day. This means more homework and more responsiblity for each child. We always enjoy visitors and welcome any new ideas and experiences to the classroom. I'm always available to talk to or visit with, so feel free to contact me at school or set up a meeting.
