Mr. Scanlan's Social Studies

Welcome!

I am Mr. Scanlan and I am excited to be your teacher! I teach 7th grade Social Studies and 8th Grade US History. We will work together in learning about the world, its geography, its history, and the cultures that make it great. And along the way we will improve our reading, writing, and analytical skills to prepare us for the future.

I'm Mr. Scanlan and I am teaching for my second year here in Medford. I teach 7th grade Social Studies and 8th grade US History. I am also the head coach of the middle school wrestling team. My passion is learning about history and the world, and being able to share what I have learned with others.

I have been with my wife for 11 years and married for three. I have one son Graham and another child on the way in spring. I love history and can find something interesting in almost any time period in any part of the world. I grew up in the southeastern part of Wisconsin and lived there until moving here to Medford for the 18-19 school year. I like to spend my free time with my family and friends whenever possible as well as cooking, reading, or playing games.
