Innovation in Education 2017: Scott Fuller

Scott Fuller was a dedicated classroom teacher for ten years, after which he became the Next Generation Learning Coordinator in School District 11. He inspires collaboration with colleagues to include innovative programs and tools in classrooms as well as in the school media center.

His library won a state award for being recognized as a Highly Effective Library Program. Scott also designs and delivers professional development about personalized learning systems on a local, state, and national level inspiring changes in practices in classrooms.

During the summer of 2017, he was invited to share his expertise with educators across the country as a keynote speaker at the Schoology Next Conference.

He takes time to meet individually with student groups and individual students getting input on how education can better meet their needs. When he comes across a student needing something to help them feel connected and cared, he meets with staff to implement plans for students.

His colleagues say,” Scott is the type of volunteer/donor that you know contributes, but does so in a way that doesn't garner attention. He has been a Secret Santa to children for the last 16 years who otherwise would not have had a Christmas. provides food for kids who come to school hungry, he supports colleagues in times of need and is a genuinely giving person.”

He sits on the Special Education Advisory Committee in D11 and is an advocate for growing practices that are inclusive. He is also a contributing member of the Innovative Education Program and spearheads the Innovation Network in D11. He is truly an educator who puts children before himself and is passionate about changing the education systems here in Colorado as well as across the country to better meet the needs of students.
