Scott Burns is a Worthington native. After graduation, I attended Worthington Community College, and then went on to Mankato State University. At Mankato I earned a degree in history and obtained my MN teacher license.
I have had a wide variety of teaching experiences over the course of my career. I began teaching in 1986 at a private school in Savage, MN. My wife Karen and I then moved to the iron range, where I taught history in Tower, MN. We returned to southwestern MN in 1998 when Karen took a position at Worthington Regional Hospital. I went back to school and completed a special education licensure. I then taught in the Windom school system for six years as a special education teacher.
Since 2005 I have been teaching at Worthington Middle School. In my current assignment I am teaching intervention reading and math. This is to help students catch up, or assist in the process of finding students who qualify for special education supports. I am also teaching two specially created sections of history / civics for students that are new to the United States. I also help with peer mediation and our weekly video announcements.
