Headshot of Mr. Scott

Zac Scott

High School Science Teacher

Bachelor of Arts, Chemistry, Western Governors University              

Zac Scott started teaching in 2014 and joined Iowa Connections Academy in 2023. He teaches science to students in grades 9–12.

Why He Became a Teacher

According to Mr. Scott, “I was not allowed to attend school as a child. So, I am just being rebellious toward my parents.” 

The Online School Experience at Iowa Connections Academy

He believes an education at our school helps prepare students for a bright and successful future, in part, because “an online education requires a student to be a self-starter. It’s something most students in a traditional school setting do not have and will never learn.” 

Message for Families Interested in Online School

If there’s one thing Mr. Scott would tell parents thinking of enrolling a child in this school, it’s that “post-secondary schools and employers prefer self-motivated individuals. Where else can you prove you have this characteristic?”  

The most rewarding part of my work at Iowa Connections Academy is helping students learn and grow.
